In the city of Winston, on next Sunday, Dr. Henry A. Brown

Baptist Church, Winston. This is the longest term of service ever 
rendered by any Baptist pastor, of a full time church in this State. 
For this reason we deem it fitting that this Convention take recog- 
nition of this notable event, therefore, be it resolved: 

(1) That we congratulate Brother Brown upon his long and 
.successful pastorate, and upon the marked tokens of God's favor 
upon him and his work. 

(2) That we congratulate the church and city of Winston- Salem 
upon having secured the consent of Brother Brown to become pas- 
tor emeritus of all the Baptist churches in the city. This is a very 
happy arrangement, as the church of which Brother Brown has 
been pastor, is the mother of all the other Baptist churches in the 
city. 

(3) That we extend to our beloved brother our cordial and 
fraternal greeting, and assure him of our abiding love for him per- 
sonally, and of our thorough appreciation of the great work he 
has done in Winston-Salem, and of the valuable service he has 
rendered to the cause at large. 

(4) That a copy of these resolutions be sent to Brother Brown, 
and that copies be sent to the Biblical Recorder and Winston- 
Salem papers for publication.

26 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

OXFORD COLLEGE. 

Oxford College, while not under Convention owuersliip or control, 
is now serving the denomination faithfully and truly. For sixty- 
seven years of its history it has sustained the Convention in all its 
work, its benevolent activities being carried on through the chan- 
nel of the various denominational agencies. 

It has a valuable plant ; its equipment is modern, its buildings 
ample and convenient. 

Its location is ideal. Its standard of scholarship is high. 

It seeks in every way to develop and cultivate the spiritual life 
of its pupils and to fit them for usefulness. Among the noblest 
women of our State must be placed those who were educated at 
Oxford College. 

Heretofore it has sought as far as possible to relate education 
to the practical needs of our people ; and now it is making more 
earnest efforts in this direction than ever. Many girls are seek- 
ing to qualify themselves to take business positions made vacant 
by the going of our young men to the front. For these a complete 
business course is provided whereby girls under the protection of 
the college can fit themselves to do their part in the world war. 

Courses in Pedagogy and Domestic Science also are provided. 

We are glad to report the college in a better condition than ever. 

In view of these things, resolved : That this Convention extend 
to President Hobgood its hearty congratulations and good wishes 
for the continued prosperity of the college.

ATTITUDE TO GOVERNMENT IN PRESENT WAR. 

The Baptist State Convention, representing nearly 300,000 mem-

war, thousands of their loved ones have alreadj' fallen, darkness and 
sorrow have come to the churches and homes ; and the end is not 
yet, be it therefore resolved : 

(1) That the North Carolina Baptists in Convention assembled send 
their greetings, and assure them of our affection and prayer. 

(2) We are their allies, their God is our God, their people our 
people, and, though separated by the great Atlantic, we stretch our 
hand across the ocean and grasp theirs in confidence and hope. 

(3) We assure our Baptist brethren of Europe that we 
realize our fellowship with them in suffering, sacrifice and hope, and 
pray that the riches of God's grace may be theirs, the Master's 
voice be heard above the tumult and the strife, and His presence 
cheer them until the darkness shall flee away, and the day or light 
and peace shall bless all nations and people.

B. C. Hening read the following resolution in reference 
to the Eoger Williams' Memorial: 

ROGER WILLIAMS MEMORIAL. * 

The praiseworthy conception of establishing in the capital city 
of our country a suitable memorial of Roger Williams and the 
great Baptist principle of soul liberty has been approved both by 
the Southern and the Northern Baptist Conventions. The plan is 
to erect a Roger Williams Memorial Church with a statue of Roger 
Williams in front, and on a conspicuous and fashionable thorough- 
fare in the city of Washington. 

As a nucleus for this great work the Emanuel Baptist Church 
has offered its present property, beautiful for situation and admir- 
ably adapted to this great purpose. Looking to the carrying out of 
this plan the Northern and Southern Baptist Conventions have 
appointed committees to co-operate with a similar committee, ap- 
pointed by the Baptists of the District of Columbia. 

These several committees met in Philadelphia and organized into 
a single committee and appointed sub-committees to look after the 
various details of the work committed to it. In view of the pre- 
vailing conditions growing out of the world war the sub-committee 
on Presentation of the Roger Williams Memorial met in Washington, 
D. C, and adopted the following : 

"Inasmuch as this is a time in which it is especially important 
to emphasize the Baptist fundamental principle of soul liberty and 
separation of church and State, we urge a vigorous campaign for 
education on this subject in connection with the effort to erect in 
Washington a National Baptist Roger Williams Memorial Church 
and statue ; but we feel that the financial pressure induced by the 
issue of the present war make it wise for the present that any 
public campaign for money for this object be delayed until a more 
opportune time." 

In view of the foregoing this Convention of North Carolina Bap- 
tists is requested by the Roger Williams Memorial Committee to 
adopt the following : 

Resolved : That we view with interest and approval the plan to 
emphasize just now the Baptist fundamental principle of soul 
liberty and separation of church and State by the campaign to erect 
in Washington a National Baptist Roger Williams Memorial Church 
and Statue. That we, the representatives of the Baptists of the 
State of North Carolina give this great undertaking our hearty 
and prayerful support in ways not detrimental to our local or State 
work. That February 17th, 1918, be observed as Roger Williams 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 29 

Memorial Day in our churches and Sunday-schools, with a view 
of emphasizing afresh the great Baptist fundamental principle of 
soul liberty and separation of church and State; and to enlist the 
sympathetic interest of our people in the proposed memorial.

whom may be mentioned Dr. J. D. Hufhma, one-time Editor of the 
Biblical Recorder and for many years one of our most honored and 
useful pastors and capable leaders in every good word and work ; 
Dr. R. H. Marsh, for fourteen years the very efficient President of 
this Convention, for fifty years pastor of one great country field, and 
throughout a long life a most honored leader among us ; and Rev. 
J. M. HoUeman, who has also held up the banner of the cross for

T. J. Taylor read the following report of the Commit- 
tee on the Mills' Monument. 

REPORT OF MILLS MONUMENT COMMITTEE. 

Your Committee appointed at the last session of the Convention 
to erect a monument on the Orphanage grounds at Thomasville to 



30 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

the memory of the late John Haymes Mills, the father of orphanage 
work in North Carolina, beg leave to report. 

The Committee held four meetings during the year, but did not 
feel in a position to make an appeal for funds to erect the monu- 
ment until the early part of the past fall. The appeal was pub- 
lished in the "Biblical Recorder" and in "Charity and Children." 
Funds have commenced coming into the hands of the Secretary and 
Treasurer, Dr. Charles E. Brewer, of Raleigh. 

The amount received up to this time is not large, but a beginning 
has been made, and we hope that by the nest meeting of the Con- 
vention sufficient may be realized to justify the committee in be- 
ginning work on the proposed monument. The matter will be kept 
before the public through the kindness of the "Biblical Recorder," 
and "Charity and Children." 

Dr. Hight C. Moore having resigned from the Committee on ac- 
count of his removal to Nashville, Tenn., Rev. J. Clyde Turner was 
chosen to fill the vacancy caused by his resignation.

Stephen Mclntyre read the following report on the Lay- 
men's Movement, which, after an address by J. T. Hender- 
son, Knoxville, Tenn., General Secretary of the La^Tnen's 
Movement in the Southern Baptist Convention, was adopted. 

REPORT OF LAYMEN'S MISSIONARY MOVEMENT . 

As representatives, of the Laymen's Missionary Movement the fol- 
lowing report is submitted : 

The Laymen's Missionary Movement among Southern Baptists 
began operations July 1st, 1908, and is under the direction of an 
Executive Committee of thirty-nine Christian laymen, fourteen of 
whom reside in Knoxville, Tenn., the headquarters, and the other 
twenty-five are distributed throughout all the States of the Conven- 
tion. This Committee has had only one paid Secretary during all 
these years. 

The following are some of the activities in which it is engaged : 

First. It has done much to promote weekly offerings and is still 
quite active in promoting the thorough every member canvass and 
Scriptural giving. This is done by offering suggestions through cor- 
respondence, by the use of literature, and by the personal efforts 
of the General Secretary. In some associations, zealous pastors and 
laymen are conducting the Every-Member Canvass in all their 
churches. The Committee has three pieces of literature on this 
subject which will be furnished on application. 

Second. The Movement is helping to organize Men's Missionary 
Unions in a number of the leading churches. A Constitution and 
By-Laws for such an organization will be furnished to any one who 
is interested. It is also suggested that the Baptist churches of 
a city organize a City Union to meet quarterly for comparing notes, 
cultivating fellowship, and promoting intelligence. 

Third. The Laymen's Missionary Movement is zealous in promoting 
the Bible doctrine of stewardship among laymen; this work is done 
through the distribution of tracts and addresses delivered in the 
churches and at conventions and banquets of men. Hundreds of 
prosperous laymen have been induced to adopt the tenth as a mini- 
mum standard in giving. 

Fourth. Much has been accomplished in arousing men to more 



32 X. C. BAPfltiT STATE COWEXTIOX 

active service and more generous giving tlirongli conventions — dis- 
trict, state, and general. 

Fifth. In many associations tlie Laymen's Committee is helping 
to conduct missionary rallies and to organize campaigns in the inter- 
est both of evangelism and enlistment. 

Sixth. The Executive Committee is now engaged in an ftfort to 
secure ten thousand Emergency Men among Southern Baptists, each 
of whom agrees to contribute once a year as much as five dollars 
to relieve some worthy and needy enterprise that the Boards are 
unable to help. While considerable success has already been achieved 
in this cause, it has been decided to make the week beginning 
February 3, 1918, Emergency Week. It is hoped that all the lead- 
ing churches, that have not already done so, will present this mat- 
ter to their men during that week. Literature and cards will be 
furnished 

North Carolina's quota is 1,000 and we recommend that our State 
Laymen's Committee co-operate with the General Committee in 
securing this number among North Carolina Baptist men. 

The Movement haS been of some value in promoting more gen- 
erous support of the Boards ; since it began in 1908 the offerings of 
Southern Baptists to Home and Foreign Missions have advanced 
from $668,223.30 to $1,436,762.48. A few Southern Baptist' men are 
now supporting several missionaries. 

T. R. Thobiirn, Religious Work Director at Camp Green, 
Charlotte, addressed the Convention on Y. M. C. A. work 
in the camps. 

J. J. Hurt read the following report of the Baptist Sea- 
side Assembly, and on motion of Lee McB. "White that J. 
A. Oates be made Chairman of the Executive Committee, 
and that the President of the Convention appoint the other 
six members, w^as adopted. 

REPORT ON BAPTIST SEASIDE ASSEMBLY. 

Your Executive Committee on the Baptist Seaside As.sembly beg 
leave to report : 

First. The 1917 Assembly was the best yet. Tlie total registered 
attendance was six hundred and forty-nine (649). Its financial 
obligations have been met. Tlie report of the auditor will be laid 
before the Annual Meeting of the State Mission Board from which 
at your direction an appropriation was made. 

Second. The Assembly idea is growing rapidly among Christian 
people. Gathering the people into groups, larger than the local 
church for special religious instruction commends itself to the pro- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 33 

^ressive Christian workers all over the land. Secretary Johnson 
is emphasizing for section meetings in ten places during the coming 
year. The Seaside Assembly does this on a large scale and fits 
into the general plan for denominational efficiency. 

Third. We recommend that the officers of the Assembly be a 
President, three Vice-Presidents, General Secretary, Financial Sec- 
retary and Treasurer. The Committees shall be an Adivsory Com- 
mittee, an Executive Committee, and such sub-committees as are 
necessary. All these shall be elected by the Assembly except the 
General Secretary and the Executive Committee. The Executive 
Committee shall be selected by the Convention and shall have charge 
of the Assembly as a Convention enterprise. 

Fourth. The Executive Committee shall be composed of seven 
members in addition to the President and General Secretary of the 
Assembly. Among the duties of this committee shall be to elect the 
General Secretary and define the duties of the several officers. 

Fifth. The Committee recommends that the Convention instruct 
the Mission Board to appropriate five hundred dollars ($500.00) 
or so much thereof as shall be needed for the Assembly of 1918. 
Respectfully submitted, 

John A. Oats, 
John Jeter Hurt.

The following resolution, in reference to Ridgec^est, of- 
fered by J. R. Pace, was adopted : 

A RESOLUTION. 

In view of the fact that a committee was appointed by this Con-- 
vention some years ago to select a suitable location for our Southern

of land on the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains, now known as 
Ridgecrest, 18 miles east of Asheville, on the Southern Railroad, 
with an average altitude of 2800 feet above sea level. It is acknowl- 
edged by people of large experience as being one of the best loca- 
tions that could have been made, and further, in view of the fact 
that our Assembly services for the past seven years has been a 
great value to our Baptist cause of our Master's Kingdom in the 
world, 

Resolved : First, that our Southern Baptist Assembly Grounds at 
Ridgecrest be put permanently on our Baptist State Connvention's! 
Program. 

Resolved : Second, that we request our people to give their hearty 
support to this imi)ortant Baptist enterprise.

[APPENDIX A] 
REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS 



With praise to God who works in us aud gratitude to 
God's men and women who work with us, we now offer our report 
to the eighty-seventh session of the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention. 

This has been a year of depressing anxiety and thrilling jjossi- 
bility. The world is in travail : a new age is being born. Our 
people are staggered at the happenings of each day. The resoui-ces 
of our nation and State have never been so taxed. Never has there 
been such confusion and congestion of worthy appeals to Chris- 
tians and patriots. Two nation-wide drives for Liberty Bonds, two 
continental campaigns for Army Y. M. C. A. within six months, 
and the continual cry of the Red Cross for wounded, sick millions 
of soldiers throughout the world, with relief call after call for Ser- 
bia, Belgium, Poland and Armenia, have made our good people give 
to religion and humanity as they never gave before, despite the 
dizzy heights of the cost of life's necessaries. But bad, selflsli peo- 
ple are hardening their souls these days and rolling in temporary 
artificial prosperity, thinking less than ever of God and His work. 

Yet despite all this, a good year's work has been done for Mis- 
sions by North Carolina Baptists. We went forward in our contri- 
butions to Home and Foreign Missions. State Missions, struck fore 
aud aft and middle in the last hours of the Convention year by the 
hugest aud most thorough and most successful religious campaign 
for larger general giving of money ever launched upon the Ameri- 
can people, the second drive of the Army Y. M. C. A., 'suffered only 
a short drop below last year's total figures, not including Asso- 
ciational Missions. 

GENERAL SURVEY. 

You did not name your Board the State Mission Board, but the 
Board of Missions. We interpret this fact to mean that you wish 
us to be just as faithful to Foreign and Home Missions as to State 
Missions. This we have tried to do. 

I.— FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

This work is administered bj- Foreign Mission Board. Richmond, 
Ya. We are laboring in Africa, Argentina, Brazil. China. Italy, 
Japan, Mexico. 

Last year was the greatest year in Southern Baptist history of 
Foreign Mission achievement. A total of $961,970.48 was raised, 
which included $180,000 debt, amount contributed to .Tudson Cen- 
tennial and to current support. This is the greatest advance ever 
made by any denomination in the South in contributions to Foreign 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 49 

Missions in a single year. If Southern Baptists had raised $38,- 
092.52 more, they would have reached the round million dollar 
mark. 

The above record was made possible both by the large number 
who contributed and the large gifts of a few who recognized the 
extreme necessities of our Foreign Mission work. 

The expenses of the work were reduced by nearly $10,000. 90.7 per 
cent of the money given was applied to the foreign field and only 
9.3 per cent was required to meet all home expenditures. 

6,347 converts were baptized, 12,930 students were enrolled in our 
schools, and missionary doctors treated 67,556 patients. We have 
at present 458 churches with 47,161 members. 115 of the churches 
are self-supporting. The members contributed last year $132,371.05. 

There is immediate and urgent need of a large number of mis- 
sionaries for evangelistic, medical, school and other departments of 
the work. To meet this need the Board was able to send out but 
twelve new missionaries at its annual meeting. This number is not 
one-fourth of the number needed. Of the 458 churches most of them 
have inadequate liouses of worship, and more tnan one-half of thes^ 
have no liouses at all. 

Obeying the wish of the Convention which met in New Orleans in 
May, the Board has been compelled to assume obligations which 
amount to $165,000 more than Southern Baptists contributed to cur- 
rent support last year, and this amount leaves more than $200,000 in 
urgent needs unprovided for. 

States, Associations, churches and individuals are earnestly be- 
sought greatly to increase their contributions to this work in order 
to save it from the peril of growing obligations and enable the 
Board to enter new fields to which Providence has thrown the doors 
wide open and waving harvests invite us. 

Some devoted friends are giving the Board Liberty Bonds which 
they purchase to help their country, and others are investing in 
the Board's Annuity Bonds which pay good dividends. Such exam- 
ples are recommended to all our peoule. 

North Carolina gave to Foreign Missions last year $47,923.56. 
This year we gave $57,315.89, nearly $10,000 advance in one year. 
Next year shall we not make it $60,000 and guarantee it? 

II.— HOME MISSIONS. 

Our Home Mission work is administered by the Home Mission 
Board, Atlanta, Ga. There are several departments of it : Church 
Extension, Evangelism, Publicity, Mountain School, Enlistment, Cuba 
and Panama. The Home Board does a co-operative work with the 
State Boards in many States. 



50 X. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVEXTIOX 

We would at this time stress the following points in our Home 
Mission situation : 

1. Cliurch Building Loan Fund. You know the women are pur- 
posing to raise $325,000 of this and the Board is pushing it all it can 
with only one paid representative. We hope to push this to com- 
pletion as rapidly as possible. 

2. Half million dollars for regular work, which is the largest 
amount ever undertaken by this Board. 

3. $G0.000 to enable the Home Board to pay Southern Baptists' 
part of tlie great work being undertaken by Baptists for the sol- 
dier boys in the army camps. Northern Baptists will furnish about 
$40,000 for the work up to May in these camps and the various 
State Boards about $20,000. It has been figured out that the Home 
Board, which will need the money for certain equipment as well 
as for men, will require about $60,000. Already the work is being 
conducted with wonderful success. It is a field ripe unto the har- 
vest and we had to enter it. We would urge on the churches a 
liberal support and prompt action for this service as well as the 
regular work. 

4. It may be worth while to call attention that our Home Board 
fiutranks all similar Boards in America in the tangible results in the 
way of baptisms. We have not been first in training, rather the 
contrary, but we have been strong on evangelizing. I could wish 
you would magnify the plan of nurturing the implanted life as 
part of the obligation of the whole body and of Christ. 

5. The Home Board is doing a fine educational service in the 
large number of tracts and publicity department. Through its mis- 
sion study books it is demonstrating that denominational books are 
in really a sustained demand by our Baptist people. It is taking an 
edition of 5.000 a year of each of the books. Baptist Missions in 
the South and Country Church in the South. The second edition 
of the latter book has now appeared only ten months after the first 
was published. The first has already been used up. The denomi- 
national principle is conserved in these books and the approach to 
the subjects treated is through our own work, which is a sound 
pedagogical principle. If our Young People should be encouraged 
to study books which fail to appreciate or positively minimize de- 
nominational group loyalty what may we expect in the way of 
denominational conscience twenty years from now? There is room 
for the interdenominational book but there is certainly none for 
the anti-denominational book, which many of these really are. 

I>ast year North Carolina Baptists gave to Home Missions $33.- 
699.71 : this year .$35.5.54.37. a gain of little less than $2.000 ! Next 
vear shall we not raise $40,000 and guarantee it.

The following is tabulation of the work for this 5^ear : 

Churches served 283 

Number missionaries 161 

Conversions 2,851 

Baptisms 1,765 

Received by letter '. 2,215 

Average Sunda j'-school attendance 17,264

Men in Mission Study Classes 256 

Houses of worship building 37 

Houses of worship built 11 

Churches organized 14 

No. delegates attending denominational meetings 1,208 

Number business meetings this year 1,720 

Pastorate Conferences 133 

Every-Member Canvasses 178 

Sermons 11,028 

For Missions, undesignated $ 2.322.29 

For State Missions $ 5,812.28 

For Foreign Missions $ 2.929.77 

For Home Missions $ 2,542.28 

For Education $ 1,190.94 

For Sunday schools Missions $ 876.24 

For Ministers' Relief $ 613.82 

For Orphanage $ 5,995.79 

Otlier objects $19,043.42 

Amount raised for all church expenses except pas- 
tors' salary $31,477.80 

Amount paid on pastor's salary $41,828.97 

There seems to be a smaller number of churches aided this year 
than last, but this is only apparent, as heretofore often all the 
churches on a field served by the same pastor as a mission church 
counted on the list of mission churches ; now we count only the 
churches directly aided by the Board. This fact also has its bear- 
ing on other items in the tabulation. 

It is interesting to note that we have had on the State Mission 
field this year 178 Every-Member Canvasses, and 133 meetings in 
which the churches of a pastorate came together for inspiration, 
conference and co-operation among the churches served by the same 
pastor. These facts make a new movement among our churches. 
There have been 1,208 delegates going this year from mission 
churches to denominational meetings such as Conventions, Associ- 
ations, fifth Sunday and pastoral meetings. 

As to Associational Missions it is impossible to make an exact 



52 .Y. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTIOX 

supplementary report. "We have not been able to get the facts from 
all Associations, though we wrote the Executive Committee in each 
ease asking for a report. Over $6,000 has been reported as spent 
in Associational work with the Tar River, Wilmington, and other 
Associations in which Associational Mission work was done unre- 
reported. We have been able to get data from only one Asso- 
ciation as to. the number of missionaries, of the churches aided, 
of the baptisms, etc. 

The Board of Missions desires to co-operate with each Association 
in doing its Associational work. It would be well if the Board 
could pay part of the pastor's salary and the Association part of 
it at each point where the Association does mission work, so that 
the Board's present method of monthly reports would help the Exe- 
cutive Committee of the Association in getting reports of the work 
done and so that the Board's plan of paying salaries might stimulate 
the churches into the habit of regular paying their pastor. This 
would be a help to the Associational missionary. It is extremely 
desirable by this co-operation to get all the weak struggling young 
churches into direct touch with the Convention work. It is in them 
that higher denominational standards and better plans of work can 
first to set into operation. 

IV.— FINANCIAL STATEMENT. 

Treasurer Walters Dui'ham's report shows that we have given 
this year : 

To State Missions (not including Asso. Miss.) . .$-45,273. 43 

To Home Missions 35,554.37 

To Foreign Missions 57,315.89 

This is over seven thousand dollars more than we ever gave in 
one year to the current support of Home and Foreign Missions. 

In State Missions our aim was $47,500, not including Associa- 
tional and Sunday School Missions. We fell $2,227 below the mark. 

This drop was a sore disappointment. Four days before the books 
closed we were over four thousand dollars ahead of all former 
records in State Missions. Receipts turned somersault in the closing 
liours. The last week this year we dropped $6,430 below the re- 
cepits of the last week of last year. The Army Y. M. C. A. run 
shoved State Missions into a side-track. 

The One-Mission Campaign last spring and the emphasis on regn 
lar giving in some of our churches had put us ahead ; and let us be 
glad, for this saved the unexpected drop at the end from crippling 
State Missions financially. 

The Board of Missions laid out the work of the year on n basis 
of $47,500 as instructed by the Convention. But the deaths and 
resignations of several men on the field and the postponement of 
ihe erection of some church buildings to which the Board had prom- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 53 

ised aid kept all the appropriations from being called. So v.v just 
aweut break even on the year's work. We shall be able to begin 
the work of the new year without a debt. 

The total administration expenses, traveling and office for Home, 
Foreign, and State Missions for this year, not including some items 
of purely Convention expense paid by our Board, was only 5.91 per 
cent of the $138,143.69, the total amount raised and disbursed for 
missions in North Carolina this year. Yet several things have 
slightly increased the expense this year : a record keeper has been 
added to the office force, office supplies are gone up in cost with 
everything else, it has been necessary to add some equipment to the 
Minion Rooms and, without a cent of concession form any rail- 
road in the State, the Corresponding Secretary has had to travel 
over 14,000 miles this year by rail attending conferences of pas- 
tors and district associations in the West as well as in the East. 

DEPARTMENTS OF BOARD'S WORK. 

I.— EVANGELIZATION. 

This is our first work. Our success as in the past has largely 
made us what we are. This must be our major work always. 

But we must be careful to make our evangelistic effort a com- 
plete work ; our churches are suffering now from a partial evan- 
gelization. The work is only started when we get a person bap- 
tized into a church ; there, too many times our effort to evangelize 
the world has stopped. 

Nothing is so sad in this year's work of our Convention as the 
falling off in the number of baptisms in our churches generally. 
Sad to say, our mission churches had 456 fewer baptisms this year 
than last. 

What can this decrease in baptisms in our churches mean? Is 
it because we are over-stressing Enlistment or is it the chilling effect 
of thousands of unenlisted members in our churches? Can it be that 
our concern about the great war is making us forget lost sinners 
in our own midst? Can it be that we have lost some of our pas- 
sion for lost souls? There are one hundred and sixty-one workers 
in this department this year. 

II.— REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION. 

During the year that has passed, a year marked by unusual con- 
ditions which have affected many of our people and all phases of 
work, the Woman's Missionary Union has made steady progress. 
New organizations have been formed until today we have more than 
sixteen hundred on our roll. Contributions have increased quarter 
by quarter, Associations and annual meetings have been largely 
attended, and an ever increasing interest has been shown. 

The following financial report was made at the Annual Meeting 
in Greensboro, March, 1917. 



54 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

To Foreign Missions $ 19,140.40 

To Home Missions 13,283.52 

To State Missions 12,691.79 

To Louisville Training Scliool 4,628.59 

To Sunday School Board 250.45 

To Margaret Educational Fund 82.53 

To Expense Fund 766 42 

To Foreign Mission Debt 3.897.59 

To Judson Centennial and Church Building and 

Loan Fund 4.984.39 

Total $ 59,731.77 * 

Perhaps the most remarkable achievement of the jear was the 
completion of our apportionment for the new building for the Train- 
ing School at Louisville, Kentucky. Our W. M. Union gave $15,000 
of the $150,000 put in this building, and the entire amount was in 
the hands of the treasurer the day the new building was completed. 

Mrs. Joel G. Layton, of Dunn, has given $3,000 to establish a schol- 
arship at the Training School. The gift is in memory of her father, 
Mr. Castlebury, and is known as the Louis Castlebury Scholarship. 
In addition to this, our Union maintains three scholarships at the 
School from the general fund. 

Early in the year steps were taken toward raising the $31,500.00 
which is North Carolina's part of the Church Building Loan Fund 
of the Home Mission Board. Much interest is being shown in this 
effort, and fourteen five-hundred-dollar memorials have been pledged. 
However, we can not, as yet, say when the amount will be completed. 

At the request of our Associational Superintendents, twelve ele- 
mentary programs have been prepared and published by the Union. 
These programs are intended primarily for new societies, and we 
hope they will meet a need that has long been recognized. 

There are more than 25,000 women connected with our W. M. U. 
work. Our strength lies in their faithfulness and efficiency and 
our weakness in the many women in our churches yet unenlisted. 

To the pastors of the State who have given us such cordial co- 
operation, we acknowledge a heavy debt of gratitude. Without 
their help, our work would not be on the firm basis it is today. 
During the thii'ty-one years of our histoi\v, the Biblical Recorder 
and its editors have used every means in their power to promote 
the work of the Woman's Missionary Union, and one of our plans 
for the coming year is to place the Recorder in every home repre- 
sented in our missionary societies, and by systematic effort to en- 
large the circulation of the Recorder among our women. 

During the year, there have been many demands for time, strength 
and gifts for war activities. These have been and are being met 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 55 

by extra effoi't, and there seems to be a full realization that the 
work of missions — winning the world to Christ — is the foundation 
on which all other efforts for the good of humanity must rest. 

With grateful appreciation to all who have helped in our work, 
and to the State Board of Missions whose sympathy and co-operation 
have been a large factor in our success. 
Faithfully yours, 

Mrs. Wesley N. Jones, President. 

Miss Bertha Carroll, Cor.-Scc, Trcas. 

Mrs. J. S. Farmer, Recording Sea. 

Mrs. R. N. Simms, Y. W. A. Secretary,

1. A Good Year. We are deeply grateful to our Heavenly Father 
for the success of the past year. Our work has not met with any 
serious interruptions or barriers but has been accorded everywliere 
that reception which we feel its importance deserves. Our prob- 
lems have been those of growth which we regard as providential 
rather than perplexing. Our joys have been those Mdiich come with 
the work and with the satisfaction of seeing it minister to one 
of the vital needs in our churches throughout the State. Our 
Secretary has proven to be highly efficient ; is regarded as one of 
the best in the South, and his efforts have been rewarded with 
results demonstrating the wisdom of the Convention's course in pro- 
viding for a whole-time Secretary for this work. 

2. Increased Numbers. The number of B. Y. P. U.'s has gone 
forward during the past year from 300 to 500, in round numbers. 
This approximates the same rate of increase as last year. We are 
pleased to say that the advance in efficiency on the part of the 
15,000 and more members has been gratifying. The enthusiasm of 
our young people for genuine Christian service not only calls for 
the organization of Unions but fulfils as far as possible the real 
ends for which the B. Y. P. U. exists. 

3. Field Work. The mere existence of the department has em 
phasized the importance of young people's work to such an ex- 
tent that what we have done directly is by no means the sum of 
our achievements. The recognition which is given the B. Y. P. U. 
by the State and Sunday School Boards has paved the way for 
its advancement and has, in fact, done much work in advance 
of it. During the year, the Secretary has spent 204 days in field 
work, traveling 8,916 miles, having visited 114 churches and making 
227 addresses, lectures, or sermons. The point of emphasis in the 
field has been that of strengthening the Unions already existing, 
and hence the Secretary has personally conducted the organization 



56 X. C. BAPTIST STATE COXVENTIOX 

of only IT Unions. He has held 8 Training Schools for B. Y. P. 1^ 
workers, each lasting a week. He has attended, as the special rep- 
resentative of the State Board of Missions, eleven Associations, 
besides others into which he went at other times. 

4. Office Work. Without any clerical help, the Secretary has 
conducted all the correspondence for the department, answered 
inquiries which have at times flooded the office, distributed litera- 
ture to the large number of interested people who have asked for 
information on the work : made up and dispatched all the circular 
letters and forms pertaining to the B. Y. P. U. State Convention : 
keeping files of the Union ; editing the B. Y. P. U. page of the 
Biblical Recorder ; receiving and collating reports from Standard 
Unions ; editing, printing and mailing the B. 1'. P. U. State Con- 
vention Minutes ; with a few other things. 

5. Standard Senior and Junior Unions. During the year the 
number of A-1 Senior and Junior Unions increased 100 per cent 
exactly, — from 20 to 40. This is an exceedingly gratifying record. 
It is an index to the very high average of efficiency maintained by 
the Unions generally. The State B. Y. P. U. Convention awards a 
Banner each to the Senior and Junior B. Y. P. U. v.hich makes the 
highest record for each year. The Senior Banner is held by West 
Durham, and the Junior bj' First Church of Wadesboro. 

6. Training Schools. At strategic points we have carried on 
schools for the instruction of B. Y. P. U. workers in the latest and 
most approved methods. Most of them have been held in cities, 
under the auspices of City-wide B. Y. P. U. organizations, in which 
the Secretary has had the valuable assistance of Mr. Arthur Flake, 
of the Sunday School Board. Others he has conducted alone or 
with the assistance of local or State helpers. Perhaps the threfi 
most far-reaching schools held were at Winston-Salem, Asheville, 
and the Thomasville Baptist Orphanage. 

7. City and General Organizations. According to last reports 
to the Secretary's office, there are now ten general B. Y. P. U. 
organizations in the State, some of which are made up of Unions 
in cities, some in pastor's fields, and a few in schools and colleges. 
We have nearly reached the limit of our possibilities in the first, 
and doubtless next year there will be marked advancement made 
in the last named. At the meeting of the B. Y. P. U. Committee, 
Raleigh, November 20. 1917, the following resolution was adopted: 
"We recommend to our Unions, wherever practicable, general organi- 
zation along county lines." It is in pursuance of this plan that 
we look for the greatest advance in general organizations next year. 

8. State B. Y. P. U. Convention. The eighth annual B. Y. P. U. 
Convention of North Carolina was held at Gastonia. June 9 to 11, 
1917. Besides strong addresses on vital themes, Brother W. E. 
Ilolcombe, of Mississippi, under the patronage of the Sunday School 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 57 

Board, came to us for defiuite class work and technical instruction. 
In attendance and interest, the Convention was the best yet. It is 
a great power-house where enthusiasm can be caught up and prop- 
erly directed, and where our young people can get definite training 
in the work of general Baptist bodies. 

9. Schools and Colleges. It is with profound pleasure tliat we 
are able to say that the very fine report of last year as to Unions 
in our schools and colleges is even exceeded this year. There are 
from one to four organizations in all but one, with an advance 
during tlie year in the number of Unions in them and a much 
larger per cent becoming A-1. It is in the schools that our young 
people get most readily and permanently that sort of training which 
will distinguish them as young people's leaders and church workers 
when they return to their homes. 

10. Financial Statement. Appropriations by the State and Sun- 
day School Boards have been handled by the regular Convention 
agencies, — through the office of the Corresponding Secretary and that 
of Brother Walters Durham, Treasurer. Offerings by tlie Unions 
have been received and receipted for by Brother John D. Berry, 
Treasurer of the Committee and by him deposited with Brother 
Durham. Our statement is as follows : 

Receipts. 

State Board, appropriation $1,500.00 

Sunday School Board, appropriation 500.00 

Offerings by Unions 509.98 

Total $ 2,509.98 

Dishursed. 

Paid balance Secretary's salary, 1916 $ 276.66 

Paid Printing State Con. Minutes, 1916 51.60 

Salary of Secretary, 1917 1,800.00 

Printing State Convention Minutes & forms, 1917 117.33 
Paid Secretary's expenses (11 months), 1917 333.99 

Total paid out $2,579.58 

Deficit with the State Board 69.G0 



$2,579.58 $2,579.58 

The Secretary's expense account includes office rent, traveling ex- 
penses, printing bills (other than Minutes and Convention blanks), 
stamps, stationery, office and field supplies. 

In connection with the deficit of $69.69 it is to be considered that 
we paid $328.26 of items brought over from the work of the previous 



58 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

year: which means that we conducted the present year's work 
within the limits of our income and had $258.66 to apply to other 
items. 

11. Recommendations. (1) We recommend to the incoming 
Board such appropriation as will take care of this growing de- 
partment of our work. (2) We appeal to the pastors and adult 
members of our churches throughout the State to command the 
service of our department, and to interest themselves in the B. Y. 
P. U. as the definite plan for training the young converts in their 
midst. 

12. AcK-noicledgments. (1) To the State Board of Missions for 
the appropriation of $1,500.00 for our work last year ; and to the 
Sunday School Board for the appropriation of the sum of $500.00. 
(2) To the Sunday School Board for the privilege of having Mr. 
Arthur Flake at several City Training Schools during the year and 
for sending Mr. Holcombe to the last State Convention, as B. Y. P. 
U. specialist. (3) To the B. Y. P. U.'s of the State which have 
made offerings for the maintenance of the department. (4) To 
the Biblical Recorder for the use of a page as the organ of our 
work and the forum of news and views by the Unions themselves. 

13. Foncard. The future holds the promise of still larger oppor- 
tunities and blessings. Development is in the mind of the Baptist 
brotherhood as never before; and the obligations of the churches to 
tit the young Christians for active service in their interests are fast 
becoming self-evident to all. The young people are responsive and 
are plastic under the touch of a leading hand that guides them 
onward. The land is resonant with the voice of the trainer ; and 
the call for effective soldiers of Christ is as imperative as the need 
for trained troops in the cause of our country. Let us not cease 
until there is offered to every one in our Baptist churches a chance 
to become "approved unto God, a workman who needeth not be 
ashamed."

IV.— REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 

Ten 3'ears ago Dr. H. C. Moore was closing four years of splendid 
service for our Sunday-schools. Soon thereafter the present Secre- 
tary was elected and began his work extending until now. Let us 
stand there and look backward ten years and then to the condi- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 59 

tions now. In 1897 there were reported 914 schools with a member- 
ship of 66,046. In 1907 there were 1,679 schools with a membership 
of 139,467. This year there are 2,151 schools with a membership of 

219,971. 

This is fine progress. The number of schools and their member- 
ship have grown much faster than the number of churches and 
church membership. This is as it should be until we have reached 
our church members and more of the unsaved people for the Sunday- 
school. But there is just one sad note. For the past year there 
has been a gain of twenty-eight schools but a slight loss in mem- 
bership. The loss is only 1,167. This has not happened before in 
a quarter of a century or more. The fact ought to give us pause 
and call us to prayer and greater activity during next year. 

The denomination has paid most of its financial debts, but can 
claim no especial credit in a time when our people are so pros- 
perous. At the two points calling for the most universal service 
we have gone backwards. Reference to the statistical report will 
show an alarming decline in baptisms and this small decline in our 
Sunday-schools tell in unmistakable notes that we need to go to 
work for our Lord. 

Activities of the Secretary. 
1. Field Work. This work has been pressed as vigorously as 
during any year of the work by the Secretary. He has reached 
102 churches in thirty-five Associations, speaking 235 times. He has 
attended the annual session of twenty-one Associations and the an- 
nual Sunday School Convention in five others. 

It is impossible to do a tithe of the work needed to be done, 
but some of all kinds has been done. Of the churches reached sixty- 
two were in the villages and country, and the other forty in towns 
and cities. Four city Training Schools were conducted. Institutes 
were conducted in five factory towns and formal institutes in six 
other places. All this effort can be but seed-sowing. The local 
workers must be the reapers. 

2. Otfice Work. The Secretary could not afford to give so much 
time to this unless results could be received. It is the opinion of 
the Committee and Secretary that the office work counts more for 
schools than the field work though both are necessary. 

First of all, there is the routine correspondence of making itiner- 
aries, answering inquiries, pressing the various campaigns for Mis- 
sions, Education, etc. 

Co-operating with the Sunday School Board at Nashville a defi- 
nite campaign of Sunday-school Education is carried on in the ju- 
dicious distribution of tracts. In practically every letter, personal 
and general, tracts are sent. During the year more than 400 workers 
have requested additional supplies of these tracts for personal use 



60 K. C. BAPTIST STATE COXVEXTIOX 

and distribution in local schools. Ten thousand would bp a low 
estimate of the number itsed during the past year. 

Teacher Training is one pf the most important phases of the 
work. The year has been barely normal. We have gained 659 Diplo- 
mas, 114 Red Seals, and twenty-six Blue Seals. This would seenj 
good, but a very large part of these Diplomas were earned in our 
Baptist colleges and schools. We easily lead the entire South at 
this point in Teacher Training. Last year seventy-eight schools 
received 1,460 Diplomas and 4,630 awards. Of these twenty-two 
schools were in North Carolina, and they received 437 Diplomas and 
1.343 awards. (An award is for the completion of some book in 
the Normal Course.) 

No marked progress has been made in organized classes. The 
Southern Baptist Cnovention at New Orleans instructed the Sunday 
School Board to elect a special worker for this department. On 
September 1 Mr. Harry L. Strickland began this work. We were 
waiting for his policies and plans. These are now in the makin?. 
We are planning a vigorous campaign of enlisting the co-operation 
of many of our unenlisted classes. 

The number of A-1 Standard Sunday-schools this year is eighteen. 
This is one fewer than last year. This Honor Roll is as follows : 
Apex, Buie's Creek, Cedar Falls, Centerville, Henrietta, Hebron, 
High Point— First, Greenville — Immanuel, Greenville — Memorial, 
Lumberton^ — First, Lumberton, — East, Murfreesboro, Mars Hill, Olive 
Chapel, Orphanage, Red Springs, Shiloh and Wake Forest. 

3. The Baptist Seaside Assembli/. The Secretary has been the 
General Secretary of the Assembly from its beginning. The last 
session was the largest and best. Besides preparing the program 
from his office, he co-operated with other officers of the Assembly 
in some field work in building up its membership. The enroll- 
ment was 649. Of these 445 came from outside Wilmington. The 
city showed the splendid co-operation of enlisting 204 in the enter- 
prise. 

FiXAXCES. 

Our people have responded more genei'ously during the last yc-ir 
for this cause than any year formerly. The last Convention asked 
us to work on a basis of $2,750.00. The expenses of the year were 
$2,795.64. The excess was for a typewriter and other permanent 
office equipment. The receipts were $3,051.09. The gain was made 
during the summer from the offerings on May 24th on "Children's 
Day", as $165.14 less was received this year after September 1 
than last year. This is as it should be. It relieves all strain during 
the campaigns for "State Missions", "Orphanage" and "Education." 
We begin the new year with a healthy balance. This ought to 
enable us to go most of next year with no overdrafts on the fund. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 61 

How fine it would be if all interest could be saved in all the work 
of the denomiuatioia ! 

Shall We Go Forward? 

North Carolina was a pioneer in Sunday-school field work. All 
(he other States of the Southern Baptist Convention have followed 
us. For twenty-two consecutive years we have had just one Secre- 
tary in the field, many of the other States have gone beyond us 
in that they are using two to four workers, while we still use 
one. Southern Presbyterians with 350,000 members are using 
thirty-two field workers to improve their Sunday-schools. North 
Carolina Baptists, with 283,095 members, still use one man for the 
same purpose. Tliere can be but one result — sooner or later wo 
must lose in the race. Are conditions named in this report the 
first sign of this? 

The Sunday School Board has appropriated for us $300.00 for 
another man or an elementary worker or $600.00 if we xise ooth. 
Your committee recommends that the Board and Convention author- 
ize us to put in the field during the next year another worker if a 
suitable person can be found and the Committee feels the worker 
can be paid. For present work and this proposal we recommend 
that we raise $3,600.00 next year with $800.00 of this coming from 
the Sunday School Board. 

Our Task for Next Year. 

For more than two decades Baptists of North Carolina and the 
entire South have been working oiit constructive policies for increas- 
ing the number of our Sunday-schools, for increasing their mem- 
bership and for making them more efficient. We can really olTer 
nothing new, but we can emphasize tilings tliat need to be done 
as follows : 

1. The pastor ought to be the key man in every church. We urge 
every pastor to secure tracts and books that will enable him to 
know the best Sunday-school work. 

2. Church memhers must be enlisted. Not over 95,000 of the 
283,095 members of our churches are in Sunday-school. Their co- 
operation must be secured. We have an unreaclied constituency 
among the unsaved of at least 300,000. One of our greatest tasks 
is enlistment. We commend the religious census as the best way 
to perform this task. 

3. Teachers and officers make or mar a Sunday-school. Piety 
and consecration are absolutely essential to their success, but these 
graces are not enough. They must be trained. We commend the 
Teacher Training system of our Sunday School Board. 

4. Church houses and their equipment must be improved for 



62 N. C. BAPTIST STATE COWENTION 

our Sunday-schools. "What surgical instruments are to the surgeon, 
what adequate tools are to the carpenter, what separate rooms, 
suitable desks, maps, chairs, etc., are to the public school teacher, an 
equipped house is to the church." 

5. Our tvatchwords for 1918 should be the same as for thsi year : 

Extension! Co-operation! Enlistment! 

Orgamsation! Education! Evangelization! 

L. E. M. Freeman, Chairman. 
E. L. MiDDLETON, Sccrctarg. 

SOME FEATURES OF THE YEARS WORK. 
First of all there is among us a growing sense of 
The Oneness of All Our Mission Work. 

The One-Mission Drive last spring did not do all we exjtect to 
see it do another year. But it did reach some results worth while : 
it struck a chord of response among many earnest thinking men. It 
gave us a glimpse of the vital unity of all our Missions. It helped 
to put North Carolina forward in Home and Foreign Missions at 
New Orleans last May. And it gave us a start in State Missions 
that went with us all the rest of the year and helped to keep the 
collapse the last week from crushing us with debt. It got us into 
tone for a more effective drive this spring. Let us no more dis- 
sect Misisons into three appeals ; it is one great impulse, the love 
of God seeking to go out througli us to our whole lost race, im- 
pelling us to join hands with one auotlier in our great mission 
work which only for administrative convenience, is divided into 
three departments. Foreign, Home and State Missions. 

Once we really see the vital unity of all phases of mission work, 
we shall see at once 

The Place of Education. 

in this missionary enterprise. AVe need to grasp one simple fact : 
teaching and preaching stand together in the New Testament ; Educa- 
tion and Evangelization have equal standing in the Great Commis- 
sion. We seem to know this truth in part in heathen coiintries. 
But we have a strange way of forgetting it in Christian lands. 

In our thinking we have set Education and Missions too far 
apart. "Teaching them" is a part of the Lord's last command. 

It is part of the work of the Board of Missions, therefore, to 
champion the cause of Education in missionary churches. We must 
put the necessary missionary motive under Education, else it ceases 
to be Christian Education. 

With missions split into three appeals and these all clamoiing 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 63 

for a good time in the annual calendar of appeals to the churches, 
Education has no regular favorable access to the churches. 

When Missions no longer presumes to exhaust the content of 
the Great Commission and to monopolize the calendar of the 
churches by insisting on three distinct annual appeals, but becomes 
contented to take its places as only a part of the Great Commis- 
sion and accords to Education a place co-ordinate with itself, we 
shall have in our Baptist schools a more distinct Christianity and 
in our Baptist churches a more effective missionary effort. 

These principles embedded in the relation between Missions and 
Education should be given a chance for free action at the point 
where Missions and Education touch the churches. This cannot be 
done without uniting Missions into one appeal and giving Education 
a favorable place in the program of activity and liberality in the 
local church. One feature of the Board's year's work has been 

Direct Dealing With the Churches and Pastors. 

We keep a careful record of each church's work in its alpha- 
betical position. We have also procured a list of the pastors 
and pastorates in the State. Our statistics heretofore have hung 
around the District Association and have been a year old. Now we 
have figures up to date each week which hang around the pastor, 
the New Testament personal center of all church work. 

It is the deep desire of the Board to give itself in every possible 
service to the pastors and churches and to depend upon them to care 
for Missions. Statements of what each church has done have gone 
forward to the pastor twice this year. With rare exception these 
statements have been apprecia/ed and the response to them has 
been encouraging indeed. In this way, we are simpler, more direct 
and less noisy in our work, but not less earnest. It tends to save 
the Recorder from being a collecting agency and gives it a chance 
to be more edifying to the saints, it at the same time stimulates 
regular giving and makes us all more punctual in our Lord's work. 

Some Changes in Administrative Method 

were installed this year. In the new application blanks each church 
receiving aid from the Board has to ask for it in its own name. 
Monthly reports during the year have been made from each church. 
The Board tries not to put appropriations in churches which com- 
pose scattered fields ; it gets in each case information as to how 
many miles a pastor has to travel each month going the round of 
his churches. In this way it urges the compact pastorate upon the 
attention of our young churches. Each church receiving aid agrees 
to have two pastoral meetings with the other churches served by 
its pastor. If it has not had an Every-Member Canvass it promises 



64 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

to do so ; it also undertakes to pay its pastor montlily. The Board 
now pays all salaries of over $5.00 monthly, upon receipt of report 
from each church aided on his field. These changes have worked 
well in the main. The year's work has been characterized by 

A Deepenixg of Our Enlistment Work. 

In March Brother W. R. Bradshaw resigned liis field work in 
the western part of the State to become pastor of Hickory, First 
Church. Ten faithful years he had labored for the Board with 
oiir western churches. A great work has he done. No man is 
more beloved among the people among whom he has worked. His 
giving up this work left us without a regular Enlistment worker 
on the field. 

Tlie Corresponding Secretary, since Brother Bradshaw's resigna- 
tion, has given more time to the field, seeking with the noble pas- 
tors who volunteered to work with liim, to get started a process 
of voluntary enlistment in our churches. The great bulk of our 
Baptist people in North Carolina are not yet enlisted in the work of 
the Kingdom. The members in our churclies wlio are indifferent to^ 
our Loi'd's work are our peril. We shall lose tliem and their chil- 
dren if we cannot grip thein into action. People come ultimately 
to disbelieve their own religion if it has not the vitality to make 
them active for its spread. 

Our Home Board saw this peril in our Baptist situation some 
years ago and in co-operation with several State Boards put enlist- 
ment men to work. Bradshaw and Kendrick and Upchurch and 
others did a good work in a few of our churches. But they could 
only start the work. Enough men on the field actually to do the 
work necessary would deplete our pastorates and swamp our Mis- 
sion Boards. Thus it follows : we must depend upon our pastors. 
Baptist churches can not be permanently enlisted by the short visit 
of an expert sent by a Board : the bvilk of the work must be done 
voluntarily by pastors in their own cliurclies and helping one another 
in protracted meetings. When we get it really started this way. 
it will go on itself by a deep spiritual process to the depth and 
width of our denominational life. 

We had this year in North Carolina 200 Volunteer Enlistraenr 
men among the pastors of North Carolina. They met in eleve.i 
Enlistment Conferences ; they represented the work of our Conven- 
tion at seven Associations, they conducted twenty En'istment Pro- 
tracted Meetings which have been reported. Many such meetings 
have been held, but were not reported to the Secretary. The Board 
paid the expenses of this work. This Volunteer En'istment effort 
did more than one man on the job at a cost of $2,000 could possibly 
have done, besides it got the Enlistment impulse into the blood and 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 65 

soul of many of our pastors. This work cost the Board only 
$210.98. 

But Voluntary Enlistment is barely started among us. Our pastors 
are more ready for it than our churches. We need to stress it 
more next year. There is no reason why four or five of our 
Associations should not have simultaneous Enlistment Campaigns 
each year led by a force of volunteer pastors until all our Associ- 
ations are reached and brought to higher standards of church life 
and activity. Such a course pursued for twelve years would revo- 
lutionize our North Carolina Baptist work. 

But training must go along with Enlistment. From recruiting 
station to training camp, and from camp to' field and trench. 

So now your Board plans to have ten cantonments for those 
already enlisted; that is, ten schools for pastors and workers of 
five days each year for five years, each school with a faculty of 
five ; each school this year with a course in Bible Study, in Chris- 
tian Education, in Sunday-school Normal, on Country Church, on 
Church Organization and Method, studied and taught in the day 
time; having at night at each school a lecture by one of the 
foremost Baptists of the whole country, a different lecturer each 
night at each school. These schools are to be located this year so 
as to serve the sections surrounding Wilmington, Greenville, Eden- 
ton, Durham, Hamlet, Charlotte, Rutherfordton, Thomasville, North 
Wilkesboro, Asheville, but not necessarily in any one of these cities: 
the five in the East to run from March 4th to Sth ; and the five in 
the West from March 11th to 15th. 

This era of high prices makes it hard for town people who have 
to buy life's necessaries, and easy for country people who have the 
necessaries to sell. The hour has struck for Enlistment in the 
country churches : the country now has advantage over the town ; 
three-fourths of our country churches come to half-time and full- 
time preaching. Many of our preachers would be really glad now 
to get a country field. 

Aid to Church Buildings. 

We may evangelize a community, but our work does not become 
permanent until a house is built for the church. This is perhaps 
truer in an old country than in a new one. Church houses need 
to be planned not according to the strength of the young church, 
but according to the needs of the community to be reached and 
served by our gospel. Besides this hundreds of our older church 
buildings have been erected with no thought of the need of smalt 
rooms for the teaching of God's Word to small groups of peopip 
gathered in Sunday-school classes. 

We should not stop until we have a good building and strong 
pastor located in every educational center of the State. The Pi-es- 



66 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

byterians are striking a master stroke at our State University in a 
good church building there. 

We have already paid out this year in aid to churcli buildings 
$3,625.00 and $3,500 more must be paid in the nest few days We 
are utterly overwhelmed with requests to aid in buildings. Sliall we 
really do something worth while for church buildingss or shall we 
merge our Fund with the Home Board's church building work? 

IxcREASixG Need of Fuxds. 

We could use judiciously $100,000 in State Missions in North 
Carolina. When we count in the decreased purchasing power of 
money it would take at least $70,000 to hold our State Mission 
work at its present level. Already the needs in some of our Asso- 
ciations are so far beyond our reach they are threatening to break 
off and do their own work ; that would mean disintegration. If we 
continue to deal in small figures in our Baptist work, the war, 
the Red Cross and the Y. M. C. A. will run away with us. We 
most cultivate a closer. 

Contact With the Work of Our Women. 

Our women in tlie Woman's Missionary Union are more business- 
like than our men, more so even tlian many of our pastors. By 
their systematic effort throughout the year they raise $12,961 of 
what we give to State Missions and $45,120 of what we give to all 
miissions in North Carolina. Our task is to get the average North 
Carolina Baptist church in its benevolence up to the level of its 
W. M. S. The W. M. S. and tlie rest of the church should come 
into deeper touch so that the whole church might get into the 
spirit and tone of our woman's work in Missions. It would be a 
great blessing to our work if most of the year the cliurch and 
W. M. S. could be contributing to the same object at the same time. 

One of our needs is 

A Change of Calendar. 

All our churches need a calendar to follow : it would be better 
if this calendar approached more to uniformity among all the 
churches. 

'The churches working on the plan of periodic appeal cannot do 
their work without a calendar of objects. A calendar is no less a 
jiieC'essity in a church working on the budget plan ; for here the 
members must be made and kept intelligent on the different phases 
ofoiir work; irregular givers should liave a chance to help each 
object; and there should be a round-up in each budget church for 
each object for the convenience of growing regular givers who wish 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 67 

to make freewill offerings out of their enlarging souls and material 
prosperity. 

Missions, Education, and Social Service are all three in the Great 
Commission : the root, stalk, the flower of it. They should all have 
a place in the calendar of our churches. 

Now the calendar of our Convention is at present partial and 
disproportionate : missions is divided into three objects and covers 
all the best part of the year. Education and Social Service have 
no consideration in our churches at any set favorable time now. 

Our Secretary thinks we would greatly improve and simplify this 
situation by closing our Baptist State Convention books Tuesday 
after the third Sunday in October, letting the Baptist State Conven- 
tion meet Monday after the fourth Sunday in October, giving Mis- 
sions right of way during the half year from the Baptist State Con- 
vention to the Southern Baptist Convention and Social Service and 
Christian Education, having riglit of way in the half year from the 
Southern Baptist Convention to the Baptist State Convention. 

Recommendations. 

1. That colportage work be begun on as nearly as possible a 
self-supporting basis setting aside $500.00 contingent fund for this 
purpose. 

2. That the Convention consider for a year the advisability of clos- 
ing our Baptist State Convention year Tuesday after the -third Sun- 
day in October ; that Christian Education and Social Service may be 
given right of way from Southern Baptist Convention to Baptist State 
Convention ; that at the Baptist State Convention each year we may 
begin a six months' drive for Missions, State, Home and Foreign, 
closing April 30th each year. 

3. That it be the policy of the Board to make its office work 
effective as possible so as to reduce the field force to the minimum, 
depending upon the pastors to look after the Convention's work in 
their churches and to aid in pressing it on the field at larsie. 

4. That an ample amount be set aside this year for the expense 
of pastors doing Volunteer Enlistment work and for the expense of 
ten schools for pastors and workers. 

5. That next year's work be laid out on a basis of $150,000 : 
Foreign Missions $60,000; Home Missions $40,000; State Mission.s 
$50,000 not including Associational and Sunday School Missions 
and the money sent in for Missions undesignated be divided in 
the above ratio for each Foreign, Home and State Missions. 

6. That right here in Convention assembled we consecrate ourselves 
to the task of raising not less than $150,000 for Missions by April 30 ; 
that in this awful crisis of the world, of our country and of our 
churches we urge our people not to assemble in their churches at 
all during the next two months without joining in a special prayer 



68 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

for Missions ; that during this time our pastors be entreated to 
preach earnest sermons on Missions and that the week of February 
3rd to 10th be set aside for daily prayer in our churches and homes 
for God's blessings on our mission work. 

7. That State Mission work be laid out next year on the basis 
of at least $50,000, nut including Associational Missions or Sunday 
School Missions ; not putting over $7,000 in church buildings. 

John E. Ray, President. 
Walter N. Johnsox, Corresponding Secretary. 

Raleigh, N. C, November 27, 1917. 

Addenda. 

8. We further recommend that the State Board of Missions, at 
its first session, take into consideration the advisability of holding 
its annual meeting in connection with the meeting of the Conven- 
tion. 

9. We also recommend that the Board, at its first meeting, take 
into consideration the advisability of placing a camp pastor at 
Fort Caswell, and at any other point in the State where soldiers 
may be encamped. 

10. We commend to our State Board of Missions, with the warm- 
est sympathy, the suggestion that we join hands, to the extent of 
our ability with the President of Shaw University in his efforts to 
provide thoroughly equipped ministers for the negro Baptist churches 
among us.

[APPENDIX B] 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION 



In presenting the Report of the Board of Education, we beg to 
record our gratitude for the continued favor of God; for the faith- 
ful and effective co-operation of so many of our pastors and lay- 
men, and for the deepening practical interest among our people in 
a cause so vital but so long neglected. 

In spite of the distress and distraction of war and of the unpre- 
cedented cost of living, our brethren and sisters have again moved 
forward in their contributions for Education. The receipts for the 
year have been $12,207.32, as against $10,697.35 for last year; this 
sum, of course, is in addition to amounts raised by local efforts 
for spocial schools and to the sums paid in on notes to particular 
institutions, all of which will appear in the sub-joined financial 
statement. 

Plans and Policies. 

These have been the same in general as those pursued and re- 
ported last year, namely, to lay the cause upon the hearts of our 
people by attendance and addresses at our Associations; by visits 
to individual churches as opportunity offered, and through the pub- 
lic press. 

In our work among the Associations your Corresponding Secre- 
tary has had valuable assistance from Presidents Poteat, Brewer 
and Lineberry, Professors Cullom, Hubert Poteat and Cochran, and 
one or two of our high school men. The Biblical Recorder, as 
usual, both editorially and by the free use of its columns, has ren- 
dered invaluable assistance, as has Charity and Chil(Jren also 
whenever it was called upon. And your Secretary would also 
mention with grateful appreciation that in the forty-seven churches 
visited during the year, his reception by both pastors and people 
was most cordial, and the work he represented was heartily en- 
dorsed. 

Beneficiaries Duking the Teab. 

The individuals jiided by our Board during the year include sev- 
enty-five ministerial students at Wake Forest, four student volun- 
teers at Meredith and one at Chowan, and our North Carolina men 
at the Seminary, who received a lump sum of $1,500.00 under 
Instructions from the Convention. And by the way, without further 
instructions, your Board will assume that you wish us to pursue 
this policy. The number of these men for the current session is 
twenty-three, of whom fifteen are now receiving aid, and two 
others are soon to be accepted. The number of ministerial students 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 75 

at Wake Forest is eighty-four, of whom seventy-three are under the 
care of our board ; and threre are four student volunteers at Mere- 
dith and one at Chowan. 

Reports From Colleges and Schools. 

Most of the , data concerning these institutions will be found in 
tabulated form and submitted herewith, but we may report here 
in general that the teachers in our high schools last year numbered 
thirty-five men and fifty-nine women ; total ninety-four. Enroll- 
ment, 1,301 boys and 1,258 girls; total 2,599. Property valuation 
$324,000.00. The teachers in our three colleges numbered forty-nine 
men and thirty-eight women. Total enrollment of the collesres, 
532 men (including twenty-nine local music students at Meredith) 
and 550 women ; total college enrollment 1,082. Total of endowment for 
the three colleges $647,581.37; of plant and equipment $490,425.00. 
Total of property values $1,138,006.37. These figures, it will be 
observed, cover the session of 1916-17 because those for the current 
session are not complete. 

The enrollment at Wake Forest, as was anticipated, is con- 
siderably below that of last year, amounting to a decrease of twenty • 
five per cent. This is bad, of course, but is better than the loss 
of fifty per cent as reported by some colleges. 

Drs. Thurman D. Kitchin and Luther T. Buchanan have suc- 
ceeded Drs. Carstarphen and Case in the Medical Department. 
Profs. S. A. Derieux and T. E. Cochran have succeeded Profs. Syd- 
nor and J. H. Highsmith in the Departments of English and Educa- 
tion and Philosophy respectively. 

A large part of the Walters property, including 167 acres 
of land, has been secured for an athletic field and for building 
lots when the necessity for the latter shall arise. 

Meredith reports an enrollment to date of 408, in spite of the 
entire elimination of the high school department. It has more 
boarding students than it ever had at the corresponding date in 
any preceding session. 

In the Faculty Miss Charlotte Ruegger has been made Director 
of Music in the place of Dr. Mildenberg, who was forced to retire by 
severe and protracted illness. Mrs. Blalock returned as Instructor 
of Piano after a year's absence, having spent the time studying 
in New York. Miss Catherine Williams succeeds Miss Futrell as 
Professor in the Department of Piano. Miss Leila N. Horn has 
been secured as Instructor in Theoretical Music in place of Miss 
Atmore. Miss Catherine Allen succeeds Miss Young as Professor 
of German; and Miss Effle Landers comes in place of Miss Thorn- 
ton as Professor of French. Miss Vann has been succeeded by 
Miss Mary E. Stark as Professor of Mathematics. Miss Marie 
White returns to fill out the unexpired term of Miss Elsie Allen 



76 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

in the Department of Home Economics, Miss Allen having died 
suddenly early in the session from something like heart failure. 
We also report the coming of Miss Louise Richardson as Librarian 
in the place of Miss Forgeus and of Miss Bessie Boggess as Dieti- 
tian, somewhat by the way of experiment, in place of a regular 
liousekeeper. This experiment has proved satisfactory so far. 

The college has received during the year $20,000.00 from the 
Biggs' estate, with the proviso that the income from $15,000.00 is 
to go to certain individuals during their lives. 

No details have readied us from Chowan save the general state- 
ment of an unusually fine opening and the receipt of $4,203.76 
towards cancelling its indebtedness. 

The only high schools heard from — Wingate, Winterville and 
Fruitland all report excellent enrollments. That of Wingate is 
better this year than last, notwithstanding the loss this year of the 
public school pupils. The immediate friends of the school have 
practically paid it out of debt ; the current receipts are meeting 
expenses, and the Trustees are planning to erect two new dormi- 
tories by next fall. Brother G. M. Stewart has promised to erect 
one of these buildings and they have employed Bro. E. C. Snyder to 
raise funds for the erection of the other. 

Winterville has a commodious brick administration building well 
under way to replace the wooden house lost by fire more than a year 
ago. 

The Board is authorized to report that Brethren G. W. and C. M. 
Wall have proposed to pay off all the indebtedness of the Wall- 
burg School, amounting to $15,000, and then present the property 
unencumbered to the denomination. The Board desires thus pub- 
licly to express its grateful appreciation of this generous spirit and 
to thank these brethren for their splendid donation. 

South Fork Institute at Maiden did not open this fall. This is 
the second of our Baptist high schools that has been forced out of 
the field, and the fact impresses two lessons : first, that we must 
exert ourselves strenuously if we are to save the high scohols that 
we have left ; second, that we should ponder long and carefully 
before starting another high school. 

The brethren at the Seminary have requested permission to send 
an agent into the State to canvass for the purpose of raising a 
large permanent fund whose income is to be used for the support 
of students. After careful consideration your Board advises these 
brethren that in their opinion such a movement in our State would 
be inexpedient until the completion of the special educational cam- 
paign which the Convention contemplates launching. 

New Departure. 

At its session in Nashville last winter the Education Commis- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 77 

sion of the Southern Baptist Convention requested the Sunday 
School Board to set apart one Sunday during the year as "Educa- 
tion Day" in our Sunday-schools, prepare a suitable program, and 
ask the various Sunday-schools in the Convention to observe the 
day in some appropriate manner. A special lesson was to be devoted 
to "Christian Education". The Board readily accepted the sug- 
gestion, prepared the program and the lesson, and set aside the 
fourth Sunday in June as "Education Day". An unfortunate delay 
in the receipt of the program prevented us from observing the 
fourth Sunday as we had desired. But the day seems to have been 
pretty widely observed throughout the South, as it was by many 
of our North Carolina schools also, which arranged their own 
programs, while other schools selected some subsequent Sunday. 
As a partial result of this plan, our Sunday-schools in this Stare 
raised something over $500.00, which, under all the circumstances, 
was probably more than was to have been expected. 

Our main consideration, however, did not contemplate imme- 
diate financial returns, but rather the fixing in the minds of our 
young people and their elders of the essential importance of Chris- 
tian Education as a factor in evangelizing the world. The Edu- 
cation Commission desires to make "Education Day" a prominent 
feature in our annual program, and it is hoped that this Conven- 
tion will endorse the plan, and instruct its Board of Missions 
and Sunday-schools to take proper measures to promote it. 

Our Larger Program. 

It will be recalled that the Convention at its last session, aftei 
earnest and animated discussion, instructed its Board of Education 
to "consider the advisability of launching a campaign for the ade- 
quate equipment and enlargement of our schools and colleges and 
report at our next session, with suggestions of details for such 
a campaign" ; and in carrying out such instructions this Board was 
directed to "confer with representatives of the three colleges and one 
from each of our high schools, together with a committee of five 
brethren to be named by the President of our Convention." Ac- 
cordingly, on February 6th the Board met in Raleigh, with fifteen 
of its eighteen members present, eleven representatives of the va- 
rious schools, besides the three school men on the Board, and three 
visiting brethren, but only one of the five members of the special 
committee named by the Convention. After an all-day session, 
which was opened by two earnest prayers, it was resolved, with 
one dissenting vote, to recommend that the Baptists of North 
Carolina inaugurate next year a campaign to raise one million 
dollars for the endowment and equipment of our schools. The 
brother who dissented, while favoring the campaign, suggested a 



78 X. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTIO^f 

maximum of $500,000.00; but after the vote was announced he 
moved that it be made unanimous. 

On the report of a special committee, the conference recommended 
that the money so raised be apportioned in the ratio six-twentieths 
each to Wake Forest and Meredith, three-twentieths to Chowan 
and five-twentieths to the liigh schools. 

At the regular annual session of the Board at Wrightsville last 
July this matter was again discussed, as were certain features of 
it at subsequent meetings of the Executive Committee, to which 
had been referred these special features. The result of these dis- 
cussions was that we should secure to conduct the campaign some 
business man of recognized ability and success whose name would 
inspire the confidence and enlist the interest of other business men, 
and of the mass of our people as well. No such man. however, 
had been found available up to the last meeting of the Executive 
Committee. At that time the outbreak of war, with its vast and 
rapidly changing consequences, seemed to that Committee to have 
changed the situation so radically that the Corresponding Secre- 
tary suggested, and the Committee advised, referring the whole 
matter to another conference. This conference was called to meet 
in Durham, December 4th. 

The Baptist Attitude Towards Edvcatiox. 

So far as popular education is concerned, our attitude ought 
to be clear to every man of even tolerable intelligence. While the 
large majority of our membership, unlike that of most other denomi- 
nations, live in rural communities and so are denied the educa- 
tional advantages of the towns and cities, we challenge any other 
organized religious body in the State to show a finer record in its 
support of popular education. We have not only paid cheerfully 
our regular taxes for school, but when occasion offered have voted 
special taxes on ourselves. Barring a few instances of unusual 
wealth, it would doubtless be safe to say that the public record 
would .show more school taxes paid by Baptists than by any other 
denomination in the State. A Baptist deacon in the State Senate 
and another in the House a few years ago forced a reluctant 
legislature to appropriate the first hundred thousand dollars for 
public schools that was ever voted out of the State's treasury for 
this purpose : and this was done over the opposition of a few 
men who have since been acclaimed as the apostles of popular 
education in the State. And when the three-million-dollar bond 
issue was pending before the Senate last winter, with more than 
half of the money which it was proposed to raise thereby appor- 
tioned ot the three State colleges and not a cent to the common 
schools, another Baptist deacon blocked the measure till a provi- 



MINUTES OF 8 E SSI OX 1911 70 

sion was inserted setting apart half a million dollars for the com- 
mon schools. 

As for the State colleges, it may be recalled that soon after the 
Civil War, when our University was dismantled and desolate, it 
was a prominent Baptist minister who made the first public propo- 
sition for its re-opening and rehabilitation ; and while we have 
sometimes been misunderstood and misrepresented, we have paid 
and still cheerfully pay our part of the taxes for the maintenance 
and advancement of these institutions. Moreover, we would here 
record our hearty desire. not only for a spirit of amity between 
the State and the denominational colleges, but also of good fellow- 
ship and co-operation in the great task which is common in part 
to both. And we would welcome any movement looking towards that 
good end. 

But we have felt and still feel that there has been manifested 
at times on the part of some of the immediate friends of the State 
colleges a hurtful indifference, if not positive hostility, to the wel- 
fare of denominational schools. We have felt and still feel that 
the State colleges should be supported with the same regard for 
economy, and that their financial statements should show the same 
particularity and have the same publicity that we require in our 
denominational institutions. We have felt and still feel that with 
the meagre provision now made for the support of our common 
schools as compared with the outlay for the colleges, our State 
authorities have placed and are placing too little emphasis on the 
common schools ; for not only do these schools furnish all the 
education that the great mass of our people will ever receive, 
but with such poor support and such short terms for the common 
schools, the high schools and colleges cannot possibly do their best 
work on the students turned out from these schools. We have 
felt and still feel that in view of the extent and quality of the 
work done by the denominational colleges, furnishing, as they do, 
so large a proportion of the buildings and equipment and turning 
out more than half the college-trained men and women in the 
State, so far from opposition or even indifference, the public authori- 
ties should clearly recognize and in every proper way cordially 
promote the interests of these denominational colleges. 

And, finally, while recognizing clearly the necessity and high 
value of our State colleges, we wish to record the profound convic- 
tion that in the nature of the case, the State does not and never 
can meet the requirements of Christianity in the field of education ; 
that the State does not and never can supply the teaching practiced 
by our Lord and inculcated upon us by Him any more than it 
can supply the preaching and administer the ordinances com- 
manded by Him, and that education divorced from religion is even 
more disastrous than no education. Current history is showing us 



80 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTIOX 

today in Russia the baleful effects of no education and in Germany 
the still more baleful effects of anti-Christian State education. 

And, finally, we reaffirm with all possible emphasis that the main- 
tenance and enlargement of our Christian schools is a fundamental 
condition of denominational progress ; and we are almost ready to 
say, is essential to our very existence. 

All of which, witli the appended financial statement, is respect- 
fully submitted. j^ rp y^^.^-^ CnrrcspoMimj Sccrctanj. 

Addendum. 

At the conference mentioned above, there were sixty-seven breth- 
ren in attendance. After prayerful and free discussion continuing 
throughout the afternoon, it was unanimously agreed to advise that 
the Board recommend to the Convention the launching of the pro- 
posed campaign for one million dollars, beginning January 1, 1918. 

In view of all the facts recited, we recommend that the Board 
be instructed to arrange as soon as practicable for the most effec- 
tive prosecution of the campaign, under the plan of raising the 
entire amount in cash and subscriptions within a period of four 
years, with the subscriptions payable at the option of the donors 
within four years from the dates of their making ; provided this 
comports with the arrangement which it is hoped can be made with 
the General Education Board in New York.

[APPENDIX C] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SOCIAL SERVICE 



Uiuler the new arrangement adopted by the Convention two years 
ago, a Social Service Committee was appointed, whicli Committee is 
to prepare and have published a report on Social Service, embrac- 
ing the work of Social Service in general, Temperance, the Orphan- 
age. Ministerial Relief, and other related subjects. 

In compliance with the instruction of the Convention, we. your 
Committee, herewith submit our report. 

Tlie Section on Social Service Work in general was written by 
Mr. K. F. Beasley. the Comissioner of Social Service for the State: 

SOCIAL SERVICE WORK. 

The modern term Social Service may be defined as any form of 
activity designed to affect for the better a class of people or to 
improve community conditions. It is distinguished from personal 
service in that it is not confined to indiviudal efforts or results, but 
embraces classes and conditions and is achiev.ed through some form 
of organized effort or co-operation. 

For the present i)Uipose we may group the many agencies of 
social work into four general classifications. This classification is 
not iron clad, and often different agencies tend to overlap, but some 
degree of classification is necessary in order to understand clearly 
a subject about which there has come to be a great deal of talk. 
Some of which is confusing. These groupings are : official boards 
and pul>lic officers ; private charitalile organizations ; commercial 
bodies, and the churches. Each of these agencies has a more or 
less i)articular field for its work. 

The iiu])lic agencies have the care of the dependent, the defective 
and the delinquent. Government activity is being rapidly extended in 
two directions. First, for the more complete care of the present 
wastage which modern society is grinding out in great numbers, and 
seccmd, inve.stigation for the discovery and application of preventive 
measures. 

Private philanthropic organizations deal with individual cases of 
suffering and are more or less organized alms giving. They are 
wise attempts at economy and efficiency in this direction. 

Commercial bodies are being organized everywhere for the pur- 
l)0se of studying and bettering the material conditions and sur- 
roundings of their localities. They see questions from the angle of 
the business life of the community. Material prosperity means a 
large, contented, industrious, and orderly and well rewarded ci- 
tizenship. Toward this end our commercial bodies concern them- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 S3 

selves with public liealtli conditions, clean streets, parks and play 
grounds, public baths, art galleries, schools, gymnasiums, town plan- 
ning, efficient government, and kindred subjects. 

Coming to the social work of the religious organizations, we are 
met with some differences of opinion as to just what functions the 
church should assume. In practical operation the churches liave al- 
ways been engaged in social welfare. Possibly there will be no 
denial that the primary function of the cliurch is spiritual and 
moral leadership. Perhaps few people will even be found who will 
contend that this moral and spiritual leadership should be confined 
to individual application to its own membership. In practical opera- 
tion the church has gone atield from this position. The logic of 
events has carried it away. When the church prays that the King- 
dom may come upon earth as it is in lieaven, it assumes the 
obligation of doing all that it can to bring about tlie Kingdom on 
earth. The question at issue then becomes one of expediency as to 
how far it is best to go in outside work to bring about conditions 
conducive to tlie spread of the Kingdom upon eartli. Evidentl\ 
that point must be the line wliere the spiritual and moral func- 
tion of the cluirch is not injured, but helped. Finding that point is 
a work demanding wisdom, experiment and observation. Some in- 
dividual churches and some denominational organizations find tliis 
point at one place and some at another. It is not becoming in one 
to lie dogmatic or critical in relation to the other. As long as the 
main consideration seems to be conscientiously kept in mind there 
would seem to be room for much latitude. It cannot be denied 
that the church as such has this two fold function, for a cliurch is 
only an aggregation of individual Christians organized for tlae pur- 
pose of co-operating in doing those things that individual Cliris- 
tians do. And the two fold function finds abundant warrant in 
the teachings of Christ, and in none more forcibly than these words : 
"Thou Shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with 
all thy soul and with all thy mind ; tliis is the greatest and first 
commandment. And the second is like unto it. Thou shalt love thy 
neighbor as thyself." Now, among those things with which God 
lias endowed us is the gift of common sense and we are to exer 
else some judgment in devising ways and means for effectively car- 
rying out His commands. Hence the church must look about it in 
every age and decide what that particular age demands of those 
who would do duty as soldiers of the cross. 

The Christian is certainly not loving his neighbor as himself if 
he is contented merely to go to cliurch and seek spiritual growth 
for himself while doing nothing to bring his neighbor into the righc 
relationship with God. Nor can a church be doing mucli in tbe 
world that is satisfied as a working organization to spend its time in 
creating aesthetic surroundings for its own members wliile great 



84 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

masses of its community are in tlie clutch of inescapable physical 
surroundings which on their very face preclude the growth of 
morality and spirituality. 

The magnificent results which have been achieved in North Caro- 
lina in the fight against the indescribable evils of the whiskey 
traffic are due to the churches more than anything else. The 
churches forced the issue long before it became popular enough for 
the politicians to take it up. Could not the same be true as re- 
gards other anti-moral, anti-spiritual and anti-social conditions? Of 
course every church member must be a good citizen in at least a 
negative way. Way should he not be one in a positive way, and why 
should not the church as an organization throw its weight into the 
fight for all things that tend to make life more comfortable, sin 
less inviting and morality more easy? As a matter of face the 
church has done this very thing. 

Aside from those agencies of their own, such as the fine orphan- 
age work and other undertakings, how can our churches contribute 
to the spread of the Kingdom upon earth by co-operating with other 
agencies? In the first place, every chui'ch can contribute its moral 
backing and such material aid and co-operation as seems locally 
wise, to every one of the classes of general agencies outlined above. 
Certainly the aims of all are moral and tend to better conditions 
for spiritual growth and development among the people. As a mat- 
ter of fact it will be found that the moving spirits in most of those 
agencies are earnest members of some religious organization. Never- 
theless, the force and power of the organized church as such is a 
great aid to them. No church .'should undertake to be the dictator 
in its community, for then not only would it lose its influecne, but 
would be in danger of becoming self-complacent and bigoted, a 
state far removed from the true Christian spirit. Bui it should 
be the moral leader. There are good thinkers who feel that active 
social welfare must be the great outlet for the modern church if it 
is not to lose its primacy in moral leadership. In other words, that 
unless it is strong enough to assert itself in this field of practical 
affairs where the battle is being waged and where help is so sorely 
needed, it will not be strong enough to retain the confidence of the 
people as a spiritual and moral force. It is a vital question to the 
churches not so much as to how far they can go in this field, but 
as to how far they can neglect it and retain their grip upon their 
commission to spread the Kingdom upon earth. 

Personally, I think- that it is not good policy for the churches to 
multiply their own organizations and agencies for social work. I 
believe that from every standpoint it will be found best to back 
existing agencies and co-operate with them and not attempt to 
create new agencies in fields already occupied. It is well to remem- 
ber here that the church is not commissioned to build a big church 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 85 

or a powerful organization, but to spread the Kingdom, and too 
much church organization per se may be a hindrance ratlier than 
a help. 

As to the public agencies for social welfare work, it is to be 
noted that the latitude of activity is being constantly widened. In 
North Carolina there is a great awakening. This was in full evi- 
dence during the last session of the legislature. In the passage of 
laws intended to better conditions in many fields, in the determina- 
tion to more effectively care for the dependent classes, the defectives, 
and to give more of the reform and less of the mere punishinent 
character to our penal institutions, and in many other ways, the 
legislators showed that behind them at home was a growing senti- 
ment in behalf of all these measures. The powers of the Board 
of Charities and Public Welfare were largely increased and the 
board commissioned to undertake things that have not before been 
done in North Carolina. In addition to caring for the classes now 
in our institutions, we will undertake to inaugurate plans for sup- 
plementing the orphanage work of the churches in caring for help- 
less children. We are" charged with the creation of county boards 
of public welfare. These boards should offer the Christian people 
and the organized churches in every community a rallying point 
for concentrating in the care of the poor, the afflicted, the drifting 
children, and in seeking to discover and eradicate bad conditions. 
Surely the churches could do nothing better than to actively co- 
operate in the creating and functioning of these local boards, each 
with a regular public welfare official. Also, the State board is 
charged with the duty of investigation and seeking the causes of 
all bad social conditions and suggesting if possible means for pre- 
vention and amelioration. In this work the State board welcomes 
with outstretched arms all the aid and co-operationn that all 
churches and denominational organizations can give.

The following report was prepared by Brother M. li. Kesler, Gen- 
eral Manager of the Thomasville Orphanage, and is adopted by 
the Committee as their report on the Orphanage : 

THOMASVILLE BAPTIST ORPHANAGE. 

The Orphanage, like a home, can have no definite fiscal year. 
Such an arrangement is made only for the convenience of the treasurer, 
but in reality, for us, school never breaks ; there are no vacation 
silences, and the tide of life goes on with the little ebb and flow. For 
two years the number of children has remained practically the same. 
At the Annual Meeting in June we had 505. We cannot increase the 



86 :V. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTIOX 

number for lack of room. Since last Convention we have received 
eighty and turned away many times that number. There has been 
no death and very little sickness during the year. One cottage, the 
Miles Durham A'ursery, had a scourge of measles, but it went no 
further, thanks to the cottage system. 

The work of tlie school has been greatly enriched by an improve- 
ment in the domestic science departments, and by the addition 
of a business course. The two school rooms, now nearing completion, 
will greatly improve the equipment for the school. One grade has 
been driven to the old laundry. The present addition will prevent 
such crowding for years to come. 

While the religious life among the boys and girls is not all that 
we could wish, we have been encouraged by the results of a great 
meeting in which our pastor, Dr. Mercer, was assisted by Dr. and 
Mrs. Dew. More than forty children were received by baptism and 
those already in the church were greatly helped. The work of 
the B. y. P. U. began a year ago continues its work of training 
the larger boys and girls. 

Financially this has beeu the best year we have ever had. Two 
years ago we were in debt $42,000. The Thanksgiving offerings for 
the two years past cleared us of debt. The regular contributions 
to the current fund have held up well, but not well enough to keep 
us entirely out of debt. At the time of the writing of this report 
the debt is ten thousand dollars. The per capita cost of living per 
month has gone from $9.50 two years ago to about $11.00 or $11.50 
at present. We do not yet know the result of the "One Day for 
the Orphanage Thank Offering" appeal, but there is no reason why 
it should not be the greatest we have ever had. Although many 
calls are coming from many and new sources of distress we must 
not forget that the widow and the orphan are the first to feel the 
pinch of war prices. Last year our current fund was, in round 
numbers, ,$65,000. This year it must reach $70,000 or we shall fall 
behind. 

Our crops have been good. The seasons were too wet for some 
crops, but upon the whole, they have been good. At Thomasville 
a large part of the crop is devoted to feed for the large and in- 
creasing herd of Holstein cattle. The farm at the Kennedy Home, 
while it suffered from excessive rains, will make a profit of four or 
five thousand dollars. 

For two years we have done no building, but at present the 
sound of the hammer and the saw is heard at both ends of the 
line. As already stated, an addition to the school building at 
Thomasville will soon be ready for use. This consists of two school 
rooms with a good basement under them. This gives most valu- 
able space. At the Kennedy Home the cottage given by Mrs. Ken- 
nedy will be completed in a short while. This will give room for 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 87 

thirty more boys. At last the chapel at that place has been begun. 
Tlie plan of the building gives three regular size school-rooms for 
day school as well as Sunday-school work, and so arranged that 
they can be opened into tlie main auditorium. Our scliool worlc 
there, as well as tlie chui-ch worlc, is suffering for laclc of a plant 
in which to work. Tliis building, to be at all adequate for present 
purposes, must, at current prices, cost from $7,500 to $8,000. The 
Committee has decided to go as far as the money goes and stop. 
It looks now that we sliall lack a thousand or fifteen liundred dol- 
lars, for this, the most needed piece of equipment for our work. 

In making this, from tlie nature of the case, partial report, we 
are keenly aware of the fact that no account is taken of the anx- 
ieties, the suspense, the hopes and fears attendant upon the work 
of directing this large group of children committed to our care. 
These cannot be reduced to forms suitable to report. With this 
contemplation in view we find our thouglits taking the form of 
thanksgiving and prayer, and thus we would rest in faitli on Him 
who has been "our help in ages past, our hope for years to come." 

M. L. Kesler, General Manager. 

Thomasville, N. C. 

At the request of tlie Committee. Brother J. M. Ariiette, Corre- 
siK)nding Secretary of the Ministers' Relief Board, furnished the 
following report : 

BAPTIST MINISTERS' RELIEF BOARD. 

As it is written "How beautiful are the feet of them that 
preach the gospel of ])eace and bring glad tidings of good things." 
At the Southern Baptist Convention at Asheville, Brother Sams, 
formerly of North Carolina, but now of Virginia, told of an old 
mouuntain preacher who wore out seven pairs of Sunday boots 
climbing the mountains to preach to lost men. Several of that 
kind of preachers are now receiving aid from this board. A 
number of the beneficiaries have done a more conspicuous work 
in the eyes of men, but, perhaps, not more conspicuous in the 
eyes of God. Tliere are at present thirty-six beneficiaries. Some 
of them have spent their lives amid the caves and coves ; others 
have preached in the city centers but everyone, so far as we 
can learn, has faithfully proclamed the "glad tidings of good 
things." 

Thirty years ago this Conventoin was confronted witli this ques- 
tion : Shall not provision be made for the minister who after having 
preached "the unsearchable riches of the Christ" is himself finan- 
cially poor? who, after haven "broken the bread of life" unto others, 
is himself physically hungry? And who, after having told us of 



88 K. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

the "'wedding garment" is now sliiveriug in the cold? This ques- 
tion was answered by the establishment of the Ministers' Relief 
Board. 

Another question will soon force itself upon tliis Convention, name- 
ly : shall not a more adequate provision be made for those who have 
put their all into the Kingdom of God? The day of the "half- 
time" preacher is nearing its end. It is very difficult today for 
the preacher to give half of his time to other work and measure 
up to the demands of the present day pastorate. Hence, very many 
more preachers than formerly are giving their entire time to the 
preaching of the gospel and when they shall have reached the 
"dead line" they will have no little farm, small business, or trade 
to bring them a partial support. The amounts we now give are very 
inadequate when the preacher has given his all into the Kingdom 
^nd saved nothing. We discount the preacher who commercializes 
his life and saves money. Shall we not then be prepared to support 
him more adequately when he can no longer support himself and 
want creeps upon him? 

Therefore as a preparedness measure we recommend : 

1. That the Convention urge each church to give to this object 
an amount equivalent to five per cent of the salary paid to its 
pastor. 

2. That the Convention instruct the Board to change its consti- 
tution so as to read "not less than one-third to be invested as a 
l>eEmanent investment fund" instead of "one-third" to be so in- 
vested as our instructions now read. Such change would enable the 
Board to put on interest any accumulation of funds in excess of 
current needs. 

3. We call attention to the commission appointed by the South- 
ern Baptist Convention last May in New Orleans to formulate a 
plan for Ministerial Relief on a scale very much larger than any- 
thing ever undertaken by Southern Baptists, and commend the effort 
on the part of the commission to meet in an adequate way the great 
needs of this problem and we respectfully request this Convention 
to authorize this Board to take up the matter with the commission 
and report its findings to the next meeting of this Convention. 

We call attention to the Christmas offering, hoping that it may 
be a truly great offering this year.

TEMPERANCE. 

Since our Convention met a year ago, the temperance forces in 
tlie country at large liave made gratifying progress. Tlie prohibi- 
tion bill for the District of Columbia went into effect on October 
31. It is very encouraging to know that the Capital of our great 
nation is now dry and this sets a worthy example to the other 
towns and cities throughout the country. 

In the late general elections, substantial gains were made for 
prohibition. New Mexico went dry, and Ohio is at the time this 
report is written in doubt, but prohibition has probably failed by 
a margin of something like 1700. Two years ago tlie whiskey forces 
carried the State by a majority of 55,408. Even granting that the 
State was carried by the wets, the tremendous decrease in their 
vote is the handwriting on the wall which points to the doom of 
the whiskey traffic even in Ohio, which is headquarters for the 
liiquor Dealers' Association. Other general legislation was the 
Jones Amendment in Congress which forbids the use of the mails 
for all liquor advertising matter, and the Reed Amendment, which 
prohibits the conveying of liquor, except for medicinal purposes, 
into any dry territory. The great question before Congress now is 
the submission of national prohibition to the States of the Union. 
This bill passed the Senate last August and will come up in the 
House when Congress reconvenes. It seems now quite likely that 
the bill will be passed and that the States will liave the Dppor- 
tunity of voting on national prohibition. If three-fourths of the 
States vote for prohibition, that makes it a national law. 

We have the machinery in this State for the suppression of the 
liquor traffic. Our great trouble is in having our prohibition laws 
enforced. Since the Reed Amendment went into effect prohibiting 
the transportation of liquor into dry territory, illicit distilling has 
taken on fresh vigor. Mr. J. W. Bailey, Collector for the Eastern 
District, gives a rather gloomy statement in regard to law enforce- 
ment. There are fifty counties in his District, each with a sheriff 
and several deputies. The Revenue' Department, over which Mr. 
Bailey has supervision in the Eastern District, has nine deputies 
and these nine have done more to ferret out and destroy illicit dis- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1917 91 

tilleries than the fifty sheriffs with all the forces they have. This 
appears to be pretty strong evidence that many of our State officers, 
if not in sympathy with the liquor traffic, are at least very remiss in 
the discharge of their duties. We believe the great work before 
the temperance people of this State now is to see to it that men 
are elected to office who will perform their sworn duty by enforc- 
ing the law. 

Practically the only temperance legislation given to us by the 
last General Assembly in this State was a bill making blockading 
a felony with a minimum punishment of twelve months in the State 
Prison. If county officials were vigilant in their efforts to detect 
blockaders, the whiskey business could be effectually stopped.

[APPENDIX D] 

REPORT DIRECTORS OF BIBLICAL RECORDER 



For ten years Dr. Higlit C. Moore edited the Biblical Recorder. 
Since our last Convention Brother Moore has been called to be 
Managing Editor of the Sunday School Board of the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. 

It was with sincere regret that the Directors accepted the resig- 
nation of Dr. Moore. While he was in editorial charge of the 
Recorder, the paper was sound in doctrine, aggressive in policy, 
interesting as to matter, and appreciated by the brotherhood. Dr. 
Moore made thousands of friends who grieved to see him leave 
the State, but whose prayers for his success in his new work have 
followed him to his present field of labor. When the relations be- 
tween the Directors and Dr. Moore were severed, suitable resolu- 
tions were adopted and published in the Reorder which expressed 
the high appreciation in which he was held by the Directors. 

As Dr. Moore's resignation was offered in June, and his work 
with the Sunday School Board was to begin the first of August, 
it became necessary for the Directors to secure a successor. At a 
meeting held on June 19, Livingston Johnson was elected to suc- 
ceed Dr. Moore. After a few days of very earnest consideration, 
he accepted the position, subject to the ratification of a joint com- 
mittee composed of the Directors of the Recorder and five breth- 
ren to be appointed by this Convention. 

The life of the Biblical Recorder runs back across the years 
almost to the organization of the Convention. In 1830 the Conven- 
tion was organized, and in 1833 the Recorder was founded an'i 
adopted as the organ of the Baptist State Convention. Through 
all these years it has stood for the work of the Convention. Its 
columns have been open to the representatives of the several depart- 
ments. It has been a means of communication between the churches. 
It has given all its influence to the promotion of every interest 
fostered by the Convention. 

The relation of the Recorder to the Convention is quite unique. 
So far as we know, there is nothing like it in any of the other 
States. The Convention has editorial control of the paper without 
assuming financial responsibilty. When the Recorder changed 
hands seventeen years ago, the property was offered to the Con- 
vention, but it declined to buy. A resolution was adopted asking 
the editor to organize a joint stock company for the purpose of 
owning and publishing the paper. This was done and in this way 
the paper was conducted for seven years. Then the present ar- 



MINUTE8 OF SESSION 1917 S)S 

raugemeut, at the suggestion of the Directors, was entered into. 
The Directors made this recommendation because they desired the 
closest possible relation between the paper and the denomination. 
This plan has worked well so far as the Convention is concerned, 
and we believe that it is the best that has yet been devised by any 
State. 

The mi.ssion of tlie Recorder is to serve the donomination and 
through the denomination the Kingdom at large. The stockholders 
did not purchase it with a view to making money. They determined 
at the first that it would be regarded as a denominational agency 
and not a money-making enterprise. They rejoice that it has had 
an imi)ortant part in the ongoing of the Kingdom, and they sincerely 
trust that its influence may become more potent as the years go by. 
The Recorder lives to serve and when it ceases to be of service, 
its mission will have ended. 

Because of the relation that exists between the denomination 
and the Recorder, We think it not inappropriate to state that, in 
our opinion, the Recorder has not had the support from the denomi- 
nation which it deserves. There is not a department of our work 
but would be seriously crippled if the paper should cease to exist. 
It is used by those in charge of our institutions and our various 
departments of work as the means of imparting information to the 
denomination and of soliciting support. The paper is the denomi- 
national pack-horse. Hundreds of dollars worth of space is given 
every year to our institutions and this is the finest advertising they 
receive. This space is cheerfully given, because the mission of 
the paper is to help the work along all lines. But while the Re- 
corder has thus served the denomination, it has not been sustained. 
During the last year or two, it has scarcely made expenses, and 
had it not been that the Recorder Company had erected a building, 
at the suggestion of the Mission Board, whose rent is used to pay 
the expenses of the paper, it could not haye lived this long. 

Sometime ago the Directors decided to eliminate patent medicine 
advertisements. This was done in deference to what they believed 
to be the wish of the denomination. The elimination of these ad- 
vertisements has caused a loss of from $2,000 to $2,500 a year. 
Since the war began prices have been climbing steadily. We had 
hoped to meet the increased expenss by putting the subscription 
price at $2.00 a year, but as the price of paper and other material 
continued to rise, we found that the small increase in the sub- 
scription price did not make up for the loss. Unobjectionable 
advertising has dropped down to the minimum. Merchants do not 
have a sufficient stock of all kinds of goods to supply their custo- 
mers. Manufacturies are running day and night and cannot keep 
up with their orders, so that advertising is no longer necessary to 
secure business, and as a consequence the paper is carrying not 



04 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

more than half the amount of advertising it did three or four 
years ago. Because of these conditions, we regret the necessitj- 
of liaving to reduce tlie size of tlie paper. It was a choice between 
reducing the size or printing the paper on very inferior material, 
and the Directors thought the first alternative the better. Re- 
duced to the size we propose, however, we shall give to the readers 
as much reading matter as they had when we carried more adver- 
tising. So long as we furnish the amount of reading matter we 
did in the days when the Recorder paid expenses, we feel confident 
the denomination will not complain at the smaller size. We shall 
endeavor to make up in quality what is lost in quantity. 

Another cause of loss is the large amount of unpaid subscriptions. 
Something like a fourth of the subscriptions to the Recorder are 
not paid. We not only lose this money, but the postage bill in 
trying to collect it is no inconsiderable item of expense, and this 
will be fifty per cent greater in the future, as postage has gone up 
to three cents. 

We respectfull}' offer to the Convention the following suggestions : 

First, that the Convention request the churches to observe at 
some convenient time a Recorder Day at which time the claims of 
the Recorder will be presented by the pastor, or some one whom 
he may select for the purpose. 

Second, that in every church a committee on Biblical Recorder 
be appointed, whose duty it shall be to solicit subscribers. 

Third, that pastors call attention of their members to the obliga- 
tion the denomination is under to sustain the Recorder, an obliga- 
tion as strong as are the claims of Missions, or any other object of 
the Convention. 

In their report to the Board of Missions, the women make the 
following gratifying statement : 

"During the thirty-one years of our history, the Biblical Recor- 
der and its editors have used every means in their power to promote 
for the coming year is to place the Recorder in every home repre- 
sented in our missionary societies, and by systematic effort to enlarge 
the circulation of the Recorder among our women." 

This is the most hopeful note we have had in a long time in 
regard to the Recorder. When our good women undertake to do a 
thing, they always accomplish it. and as they have pledged their 
support and co-operation to the interests of the Recorder, we feel 
sure that in them we have an ally whose value cannot be estimated. 
It has been a pleasure for the Recorder to use its influence for the 
Woman's Work, and even without this assurance of appreciation on 
their jiart. it would have continued to give the work of the women 
a whole-hearted support. Livi.ng.stox Johnson, Editor.

STATISTICAL SUMMARY 



The preceding pages comprise my tenth annual report as Statis- 
tical Secretarj-. I prepare this summary for the busy reader who 
does not have the time or the inclination to "dig through' more than 
eighty pages of compat facts. 

To date, December 1st, I have the minutes of twenty-four Asso- 
ciations and written reports on blank forms from thirty-six others. 
No report was received from the Catawba River, Liberty-Duck- 
town, Stony Fork and Tuekaseigee Associations. In justice to the 
clerk of the last it ought to be said the letters were burned with 
his home before they could be tabulated. The Dock Association 
was formed from the Brunswick. Data received after all addi- 
tions were closed show an error in table used. Mill Creek is not 
in this Association, but Magnolia and Palymyra belong to it. 

In church membership and Sunday-school membership we were 
compelled to use year old data in many cases. From over 200 
letters sent to delinquent churches, we received much data making 
the report far more accurate and complete than • it could have 
been without it. 

Churches and Membership. 

We have 2173 churches in sixty-five Associations. The mem- 
beship is now 283,095. This is a gain over last year of 3,258 which 
is the smallest gain in many years. The gain in churches is 
twelve. This year we dropped from the roll several churches re- 
ported as "dead". Several others have made no report in years. 

Baptisms. 

There has been a distressing loss this year and in 1916. There 
were reported this year 13,964 — a loss of 2,137. Last year we lost 
1,802 as compared with 1915. This is a total loss of 3,939 in 
two years. Of the 2,173 churches 1,454 report baptisms with 710 
making no report of any. Practically one-third of our churches 
seem to have done nothing in this the greatest of our activities.. 
Ai-e we losing our evangelistic power? 

Contributing and Non-Contributing Churches. 

The wise business man considers his liabilities as well as his 
assets. When we make our averages, we consider the "do-nothing" 
churches along with the active ones. A subsequent paragraph will 
show what the contributing churches are doing for the several 
objects. When we study these non-contributing churches, remember 
I have included those whose 1916 membership was used, those who 
with no membership reported and those that failed to report to 



184 X. C. BAPTIST STATE COXVEXTIOX 

their Associatiou. but did report to me on blank postcards sent 
out. It would be fair to add about seventy to the first group and 
subtract the same from the last one. 

"We give the number of churches that gave to the several Con- 
vention objects and those that did not. The first number contri- 
buting to the several objects, and the last those reporting no 
contributions: To some Convention object, 1,864 — 309: to State 
Missions, 1630-543 : to Home Missions, 1551-622 : to Foreign 
Missions, 1,551 — 622 : to Foreign Missions, 1.556 — 617 : to Sunday 
School Missions, 725—1,448; to Christian Education, 885—1,288; to 
Ministerial Relief, 1,020—1,153. 

Contributions to Cox^-extiox Objects. 

The amounts reported to Convention objects are as follows — 
State Missions. $57,835.58; Home Missions, |39.822.93; Foreign Mis- 
sions, $60,209.11; Sunday School Missions, $4,923.73: Orphanage. 
$67,800.28; Cliristian Education. $17,853.55; Ministerial Relief. $6,- 
240.49: Total, $254,685.67. This is an aggregate gain over last year 
of $20,422.71. It is clear to most people that the above amounts 
are for Associational years ending from May to November. It 
also includes money for Associational Missions, money sent to the 
Orphanage and that sent direct to Home and Foreign Boards 
in Atlanta and Riclimond. With this statement no one Avould ex- 
pect these totals to agj-ee with the totals of the Convention Treas- 
urer whose fiscal year closes November 20tli. 

Associations Leading. 

We give first and second place in eacli item. Number of churches : 
Roanoke 64; Neuse- Atlantic 63; Pilot Mountain 63. Membership 
of churches': West Chowan 12,897; Chowan 11,689. Baptisms: 
Pilot Mountain 569 South Fork 5.55. Number of S S.: West 
Cliowan 73 : Pilot Mt. 65. Enrollment of Sunday Schools : Chowan 
8.502 : W. Chowan 8.446. Contributions to State Missions : Roanoke 
$4,425.57; West Chowan $4,172.60. To Home Missions: West Chow- 
an $3,311.79; Mt. Zion $2,243.90. To Foreign Missions: Raleigh 
$4.492.63 ; West Chowan $4,356.24. To Sunday School Missions : Tar 
River $459.22: Mt. Zion $360.56. To Orphanage: West Chowan 
$7,457.97; Roanoke $4,513.21. To Christian Education: Roanoke 
$1,438.52; West Chowan $1,337.89. To Ministerial Relief: Mt. Zion 
$516.96; Roanoke $362.78. To all objects: West Chowan $21,218.53; 
Roanoke $15,.~>50.68. 

Peb Capita Contributions. 

For all Convention objects the per capita is uinnety cents. This 
is a gain of six cents over 1916. If we consider only those wlio give 
the per capita would be over $2.00. Seventeen Associations have 
averaged over $1.00 per member as follows: Piedmont $2.22; Ceu- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1911 185 

tral .$1.99; Roanoke $1.99; Pee Dee $1.84; Mecklenburg-Cabarrus 
$1.68; West Chowan $1.65; Neuse-Atlantic $1.64; Raleigh $1.57; 
Robeson $1.42 ; Mt. Zion $1.38 ; Cumberland $1.12 ; Wilmington $1.11 
Flat RiA-er $1.10; South Fork $1.10; Chowan $1.09; Pilot Moun- 
tain $1.08 ; Buncombe $1.07. Five other Associations gave above the 
State average as follows: Beulah 92c; Eastern 92c; Liberty 94c 
South Yadkin 93c Tar River 91c. 

Other Averages. 

The average church membership is 130. Of the 1454 reporting 
baptisms the average is nearly ten. Of the contributing churches 
to Convention objects tlie average is as follows : State Missions 
$34.86: Home Missions $25.68; Foreign Missions $38.69: Sunday 
School Missions, $6.79 ; Orphanage $39.97 ; Christian Education 
$20.17 Ministerial Relief $6.10; All objects $136.63. 

Sunday Schools. 

There are now 2,151 schools which is a gain of twenty-eight. The 
membership is 219,921 — a loss of 1,167. Tliere are 113 branch schools 
reported. Very few of these have reported their membership and 
practically none of them their superintendents. There seems now 
to be 135 churches that have no Sunday-schools. We have used 
1916 data in churches when we were reasonably sure there are 
schools. 

Our churches became much confused about "Missions in the Sun- 
day-schools" and "Sunday School Missions." Treasurer Durham 
this year reported $3,051.09 for "Sunday School Missions." The 
Sunday School Board paid $500.00 of this. The churches sent 
$2,551.09. In the Associations the churches reported $4,923.73. 
Many count money raised in the Sunday-school for "Home, State 
and Foreign Missions" as "Sunday School Missions." 

From Nashville we learn that North Carolina now has 4,472 Nor- 
mal Diplomas, 561 Red Seals, 172 Blue Seals, twenty-eight Post Grad- 
uate Diplomas, eighteen A-1 or Standard Sunday-schools and 578 
registered Organized Classes with a membership of 17,672. 

Colleges and Schools. 

We now have three colleges and fourteen higli schools under 
denominational control. Since the last report South Fork Insti- 
tute has closed and the property ordered sold. Tlie property of 
these institutions is valued at $1,451,000. They have 182 officers and 
teachers with an enrollment last year of 3,535. The State co- 
operates with the Southern Baptist Theological Semiunary, and the 
Woman's Training School at Louisville, Ky. These two instiutions 
have property worth $1,735,000 with about twenty teachers and 
450 students. There are four other institutions in the State owned 
and controlled by Baptists but not under denominational control. 



186 X. C. BAPTIST STATE COyVENTION 

They have nearly 1,000 student and property worth nearly a half 
million dollars'. 

Baptist Young People's Unions. 

The B. y. P. TJ.'s have rapidly increased in numbers and eCficieucj 
From 300 a year ago, their number has gone forward to 500. This 
inncludes both Senior and Junior organizations. Their enrollment 
is, in round numbers, 15,000. One of the most popular phases ol 
the work among the young people is the Systematic Bible Readers' 
Course, with about one-fourth of the entire membership engaged iii 
it. The number of Standard, or A-1 Unions has advanced from 
twenty a year ago to forty at this time. There are ten general B. 
T. P. U. Organizations ; and in practically every one of our Bap- 
tist schools and colleges the number of Unions range from one to 
four. A B. Y. P. U. State Convention is held annually, composed 
of all the Senior and Junior Unions in the State, togetlier with 
representatives of regular Baptist churches in which no young 
people's organization exists. 

Woman's Work. 

The Woman's Missionary Union now has missionary societies in 
fifty-five Associations. Fifty-one of these have Associational 
Unions and are working under the direction of superintendents. 
During the year thirty-eight Associational meetings were alteuded 
by members of the W. M. U. Executive Committee or their repre- 
sentatives. 6,985 mUes were traveld by officers of the Committee 
in the interest of missions, and 7,392 miles by the Associational 
Superintendents. 

322 new societies were organized during the year. In all, there 
are now 1484 societies active in the missionary endeavor. Of these, 
734 are Women's Missionary Societies, 213 are Y. W. A.'s and 
G, A.'s, 55 R. A.'s and 482 Sunbeam Bands. 

The W, M. U. contributions for 1916-1917 were $50,849.79 for 
regular objects, $4984.39 for Judson Centennial and Church Build- 
ing and Loan Fund, and $3,897.59 for the Foreign Mission Debt, 
making a grand total of $59,731.77. This was $10,731.77 al)0ve the 
aim for the year. Thirty-three Associations made a ten per cent 
increase in their gifts of the previous year. The Central and West 
Chowan Associations each gave over $3,900.00, and the Buncomh*^, 
Mecklenburg-Cabarrus, Mt. Zion, Pilot Mt., Roanoke, Raleigh, r.nd 
Robeson gave more than $2,000.00 each.

LIST OF ORDAINED MINISTERS 



This is as nearly a new list as we could make it. We have used 
all available data from every Association from which we could 
get a report and in others we used 1916 reports. We worked on 
the basis that former lists had been destroyed. We prepared a 
card index of all ministers and then copied this for the printers. 

After this was done we checked by the old list and made as many 
corrections and additions as we could and solicited data from others 
who know our ministry. 

Of course, there are errors yet, but we have tried faithfully to 
make the list correct. Many pastors have moved since the meeting 
of the Associations. Many Associational Clerks give more than one 
post office to the same man. If any one is enrolled who ought 
not to be, let some one give this information. Those marked * are 
pastors.
